Solid specs, good price.
Phone cameras are becoming ubiquitous, but the lenses on them are tiny and designed with durability in mind more than optical quality. They'll never compete with the glass in a lens like this (in either the size or quality of the glass).
I have a Canon 40D DSLR with a few lenses and really enjoy photography. That camera can take better pictures than a P&S, but it's much more expensive and much more complicated to use. I used to have a Kodak point & shoot (until it was stolen) and my parents still do.
Kodak Point & Shoots are easy to use, even for technophobes, and make it easy to download, organize, and share your photos.

So what you look for in a camera is an over-priced, proprietary battery?
You snooze, you loose. Well I have snost and lost.
