Well, `not wanting to force subscriptions' is actually the right answer
if it would have been an `either/or' choice.
More probably, it's because it's just not viable to include it in a
device that size at that price-range--there have been in-depths
discussions about this as it pertained to the FreeRunner, previously;
they're probably still applicable.
As far as the full-sized tablet goes, you could look into getting a
UMTS/HSDPA/whatever USB stick to connect to one of those internal USB ports.
I've seen ones that may be small enough for as low as $50 US, though
it's not obvious how well they'd work from inside the tablet.
