The newest Canon G series is called the GX, I believe. Supposed to have a pretty large sensor and take really good photos for not being a DSLR.

My gf got a Sony NEX-5N for X-mas and it is a baaaaaad ass camera. It's one of those "Interchangeable Lense" cameras that is not a DSLR. Has a sensor larger that some entry level DSLR's though, and can shoot I believe 7fps on the fastest mode (might be 10fps). We haven't learned all of the settings yet, or really even come close, but even for a point and shoot it still takes amazing photos. It came with a lense (20-70mm maybe?) and there are about 6-8 other lenses you can purchase for it. You can also purchase an adapter which allows you to use any Sony DSLR lense (again, don't know the correct terminology but maybe called A-mount?) as well as a lot of Minolta lenses (Sony bought Minolta's camera division).

So that's what I got.
