The PS3 already has built in WiFi, but no other players currently have WiFi available or planned, unless you count the 360 and HTPCs/Laptops. Although I think it is something that will likely be required going forward if Profile 2.0 / BD-Live is expected to reach the widest possible audience.

There are some wireless adapter solutions you might be able to take advantage of, but it isn't exactly as practical as the CEs just building WiFi into their players.

Even firmware updates would benefit from WiFi.

If you want a WiFi Profile 2.0 player, get a PS3. I don't see a standalone WiFi enabled Blu-ray player coming out anytime soon. Your other solution is get a WiFi access point with an ethernet port.
