Other 1.8" screen digital cameras currently available which you might also want to look at include the Nikon Coolpix 8800 which has better reviews.

Cameras with a larger display diagonal that might also be worth considering include the Minox DCC 14.0 (£139.48) (2"), or the Ingo VIC002O (£51.69) (2.4").
