Singaporean carrier offers iPhone 4/4S models without cameras

AFP reports that Singaporean iPhone carrier M1 has begun selling special no-camera versions of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S designed to meet the requirements of Singapore’s defence ministry, where military personnel are banned from taking camera or other image-capturing devices into army facilities. M1 began offering the no-camera versions of the standard iPhone 4/4S models today via its web site and retail stores, in all available capacities and both black and white with the non camera versions selling for approximately $38 USD more than the standard models. Singapore’s military institutions instituted a ban on camera phones in 2007 following the online posting of several photos of sensitive training activities. The no-camera iPhone models are specifically designed with military personnel in mind but are available for purchase by any M1 customer. [via The Verge]

A lot of US customers would benefit from this as well. Not just those in military service, but also military and other government contractors, whose employers and/or work sites strictly forbid possession of any form of photography equipment (cameras in phones included).
