LOL a dongle can actually be better since it allows you to not only choose if you want to have wifi or not for a particular situation but also has the potential benefit of being able to buy the next, improved version of the dongle instead have having to buy a whole new camera to get the updates to the wifi.

Wi Fi and GPS chips in manufacturing quantities are now *very* cheap.

Nikon's add on external "dongles" are expensive for what they are - and in use they prevent the use of other accessories that use the same port.

In some situations these dongles  are also prone to being knocked damaged - and damaging the connector on the camera as well

If people want to add improved external devices, Nikon could always provide  an option to disable the internal device and use an external one  - so there is no benefit in not having these features built-in.
