It seems to be assumed that the screen is a necessity for a digital camera but it uses a lot of juice and dominates the back of the camera, determining the minimum size of the 'compact' as well.  A viewfinder can do all the screen does and use a lot less battery power.  It also works better in bright light and recently, from Sony in particular,  the quality and design of the evf has greatly improved its functionality.  I could imagine a very small camera with a good sized sensor,  a decent zoom and a viewfinder to aim the camera and review the images, and with a small long lasting battery into the bargain!  Why not?
