as the examples posted show, not only do you need to be close, the background wants to be far away, not your typical shallow dof but better than P&S.

as noted, lens/sensor size is the determining factor, as well as f stops, etc.

if want compact, fixed lens, you may want to look at Canon G1X, 1.5" sensor, slow focus but great IQ, much better shallow DOF.

other model suggestions?

Actually I'm very interested in other model suggestions! I want non interchangeable lens but decent control of DoF and pocketable.
