So, I'll be enlisting into the army soon and I'll be needing a new phone since the military here has strict rules about multimedia devices. Originally, I wanted to get a first gen iPad since that's the closest to what I need but recently they have banned devices with screen with more 5 inches in diagonal length.
A reasonable amount of internal memory(2GB+)
No memory card slot preferred
Wifi/3G (wifi is the most important part)
Proprietary connection to PC(No standard mini/micro USB)
Touch screen preferred
Thanks in advance.

This may be worth keeping an eye on http://tiny.cc/84v4w. I couldn't really find much else for android devices
Only other thing I can think of is that Blackberries tend to ship in 2 models, 1 with a camera and 1 without.
Edit: If you were considering an iPad why not get an older generation iPod and install the viber app (or any similar app)? This free app allows you to use you current phone number and make calls over wifi, even if you don't actually have your phone with you and, best of all, doesn't require jailbreaking - its completely legal :)

A dell streak would almost be perfect! Proprietary connection, internal memory, android, screen isn't larger than 5 inches, wifi and 3g. But the only problem is it has a camera. If you can remove the cameras from the front and the back of the phone you might just be able to get it through

This doesn't exactly fit what you want but the only phone I can find without a camera is the BlackBerry Bold 9650 ( http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/store/controller?item=phoneFirst&action=viewPhoneDetail&selectedPhoneId=5609&deviceCategoryId=1 ).
No camera Doesn't have a Camera
A reasonable amount of internal memory(2GB+) 512MB internal included + 2GB SD Card
No memory card slot preferred Does have a card port
Wifi/3G (wifi is the most important part) Has Wifi and 3G
Proprietary connection to PC(No standard mini/micro USB) I'm not sure about this one
Android/WP7 preferred Blackberry OS
Touch screen preferred No touch screen
The only other thing I can think of that would be better would be getting a 3rd generation iPod Touch and using that. Because that meets everything except the OS requirement.
