last answer from Always Innovating to me was:

Thank you for your feedback.  We are aware that many customers wish to
have a GSM option available, and we do our best to satisfy as many
customers as possible.  Unfortunately, we currently do not have any
plans to release a version of the Mini Book with GSM capabilities.  If
that possibility opens up to us in the future, we will be sure to make
note of it on our website.
