I am in the process of looking for a new phone.  I currently have a Palm based Smartphone that is a bit dated.

My requirements are:

  • Windows Mobile 2003 or later
  • If Windows Mobile 2003, there needs to be an upgrade path to Windows Mobile 5
  • On the GSM Network
  • Unlocked

But I do have very firm requirement that seems to be anathema to all SmartPhone makers – No Camera!  Camera phones are simply not acceptable in my work environment (.. and I really don’t care all that much for them myself)

The Audiovox SMT 5600 seems to be getting good press, but it has a camera.  Does anyone know if HTC makes a camera-less version of this phone and where I can get one?  I do need this unlocked since I do plan to take this phone with me when traveling outside the U.S.

Any suggestions?
