A cameraless version of the Apple iPhone 4S
The military in Singapore have a rule against its personnel owning smartphones with a camera. In fact, servicemen with smartphones must show a certificate that their device has been modified by one of the local carriers to prevent photographs from being taken. But to make things easier, Singapore's M1 has started offering a cameraless version of the Apple iPhone 4S.

Just to be sure, this is not an officially sanctioned Apple modification and the carrier is simply opening up the device and stripping out the camera. For that, the price is raised to a premium level and the warranty is voided. While some manufacturers offer versions of their phones without a camera (BlackBerry, especially), until Apple offers a version of its devices without a shooter, this is the only way that Singapore military members get to enjoy the iPhone 4S. And for the carriers, it is enough of a lucrative market to make it worth their while.
