Good question - I already asked it here (and hope to hear from Sean):

(unpowered usb 1.1 host or device mini-usb jack)

So Bluetooth or Wi-fi could be used with an adapter that powers up
the USB.

The FIC hardwareteam is working to get Bluetooth in V1,
but can't promise it...

IMHO it wouldn't heart to wait some weeks more when this helps to
have hardware design (with data radio) usable for a longer time ;)

So let us surprise... and I wouldn't be disapointed then the first
version wouldn't have some nice I/Os like Bluetooth - with 
an open GNU/Linux AGPS mobile will be sooo much possible to hack :)))
