Your preference for No 3G is good for updates. Not having the telco
involved really speeds-up the update turn-around time.

I bought an Asus Transformer Prime some time ago, which has been
updated fairly quickly and consistently ever since (Certainly updates
a lot more often and up-to-date than any phone I've owned). While I
have reservations about the design/build quality of this (They rushed
it to market), the OS updates have been pleasingly frequent.
