Only cause you asked so nicely.

The Sanyo 2300 and the Sanyo 9000

the 2300 is a budget P2T flip phone no camera, mono external screen, 65k colour inside screen. Hopefully debut at $400 or less (or even $300)

the 9000 looks a lot like the 5600, with a "better camera" but im not sure if thats higher res, or just better optics.

And although these are being readied for release (as far as im aware), I have no release date to give you - could be next week or next year or never (example: Kx1/Kx2)

they often have new handsets just before they are released on telecom.

Skyplonk: will the 3125 still be able to recieve photo/video messages by the time it hits our shores?

From what I understand no it won’t. The few in PTC I saw a while ago had a multimedia message inbox, but when ever it was mms'ed just got the normal legacy link via sms to the phone. So I guess no. But do not hold me to that! : )

Please remember , if these devices are in test "They are Still Being Tested" and debugged , hence that maybe way things are not always working . If the device has a camera the MMS sending and recieving will be working at time of launch.

I know that any with camera will be able to use MMS, but it would be nice to have a few phones that do MMS but dont actually have a camera.

A number of businesses I deal with, I have to take a non-camera phone with my calls diverted to it, because they dont allow camera phones on site. At all. Period.

I've wondered why Telecom are so adverse to MMS in Non Camera phones, I.e Nokia 3105, Gtran 4020.

Surely it's more work to hack the firmware to remove MMS capability.

I'm guessing, it's because those phones, (3105 and gtran) were released before telecom's MMS was up and running and ready for public use - so when the phones were sent to market they removed the MMS feature rather than sell with functionality that didn't work.

Maybe, but surely they could have left it in and advised owners when MMS was available.
