Because software features aren't free to implement and all software  
companies have finite resources and priorities? Nokia likely balanced  
the possible benefits against the costs of implementation and possible  
pitfalls (How do you explain to users why removing removable media now  
makes their system unbootable? Or how the card they used to mount on  
their Windows computer over USB no longer mounts? Or a variety of  
other issues. . . .) and came to the conclusion that it wasn't worth  
the time and effort (and suffering for their support staff) for their  
average user's use-case.

Clear enough?
