Hi Michael,

A supplier in the US ( http://www.ipphone-warehouse.com ) states:
"Cisco 8945 has been discontinued and is no longer available for purchase. The 
suggested replacement is the Cisco 8845 IP Phone."

Another recently discontinued video phone is the Yealink VP530 Phone, kind of 
goofy looking, but can still be purchased ...
Yealink VP530 IP Video Phone Video Review / Unboxing

Though, I can't say I understand why your customer wants a video phone. :-)
