    This is actually a good move by MS . Since in many companies camera phones are not allowed. These days its hard enough to find a basic phone without camera leave alone a smart one. i wud definitely get myself a Windows phone if and when its launched without a camera. So a bit of introspection is reqd here on MS decision.

    Many of the corporates doesnt allow camera phone due to securityreason…
    If we are getting a smart phone without a camera that will be great. Coz it will help many people to buy such phone as there is no smart phone available without camera .

    no offense, but your view is wrong… making it an option opens windows phone for users in secure environments, something that (right now) only blackberry provides…

    think of government offices, or court rooms, etc, places where cameras are flat not allowed… just maybe someone would still like to use their phones in these places?

    And for people who work in secure sites where cameras (including camera phones) are not permitted, what do you suggest? How "Smart" a phone is has absolutely nothing to do with wiether a camera is or is not included.

      You got me there. yes it’s a pain and yes camera-less phones are needed. I don’t think the smartphone makers would make them though. It’s still a very niche market.

    did you ever think to consider the people who want smart phones but can not have a camera because of where they work? i think it is a good idea.
