Give me an iPhone with no Internet

I'm not sure how big this market niche is but at least I'm in it: Give me an iPhone with no Internet.

It's a hassle for me to carry both my cell phone and iPod. So, I would like everything an iPod classic can do to be integrated with my cell phone. Yes, iPhone can do that, but it's also doing many other stuff that I don't need:
  • Email (I only check emails at home and office)
  • Internet (Likewise, I don't need access to the web on the street)
  • 3G (If I don't need Internet, of course I don't need 3G)
  • Maps with GPS (GPS itself is of little to no value to me as I rarely travel)
  • Camera (My digital camera can do a better job)
  • Touch-screen (I still prefer the touch of the number pad)
In other words, I only need to talk and listen to music and audible books on my cell phone. Eliminate all the other fancy stuff and make the phone and carrier plans cheaper. The cost of the current iPhone is just still too much for what it's worth to me.

Does anyone else has the same needs like me? I hope that I'm not that weird.

Apple, if you can do that, you got my business :)
