Why aren't there more fixed-lens cameras with APS-C sensors?

Isn't the new Nokia smartphone, with its 41 MP sensor, a fixed-lens device -- gets its zoom by cropping that huge image?

Might be a way to go for next-gen point 'n shoots...

A 2x cropping zoom loses 75% of the pixels. A 4x crop zoom would lose 15/16 of the pixels. So I'd say you'd need a 160 MP sensor to get anyone interested.
