Phase-detect autofocus?

Particularly for action shots, cameras that use phase-detect autofocus technology are in general said to be capable of producing better quality images than their contrast-detect counterparts because the autofocus technology is faster.  I've been dragging my heels on upgrading to a DSLR due to their bulk and heft, as I'm a big fan of portability.  Are there any non-DSLR cameras out there that employ phase-detect autofocus?
