Ewww.  I hope this will be reconsidered for later devices.  I can tell
you that among a laundry-list of peeves about my old Nokia 6600, having
the MMC card buried under the battery was very high on the list.

Placing it there relegates it to use as extra internal storage.  Having
it readily removable while the device is operating makes it FAR more
useful - swap out to camera, handheld, laptop, etc with ease.
