No, it's not necessary.  Wifi only is fine for me.

I have a hot spot on my Razr Maxx, Tablet Talk to keep my text messages coming to my tablet, and unlimited data, so no need for it.

If I wanted to shell out $400+/year for cellular wireless, I'd have a smartphone.  I don't.

Why would I want to involve my phone carrier with my tablet?  Verizon sucks with updates (e.g. my Droid Bionic still on GB....).  I'll stick with WiFi only, thanks, and use FoxFi when needed.  :-)

Why? Too easy to tether it to my 4G Bionic for free.

Only because of 32gb internal storage :-)

With the leaks in the UK of the 32GB Nexus 7 retailing for 199.99 GBP are true then I very much doubt it'll also be a 3G capable device at that price point...

quite happy with wifi only. since my mobile phone is never used on the net but simply to stay in tough with the boss then another expense is not required.

Nope, my cell bill is quite high enough.  My phone providers a hotspot adequately.
