I notice mobile phones eating into compact cameras, so the S90 was a great innovation, but now after 2012, Canon must do more with their PowerShot S110 etc, and get a 13 mm sensor out like the Sony RX100.

Just how well are mirrorless ILC's doing? Growth, but not much? So that's probably why the two big boys Canon and Nikon leave the mirrorless ILC to the smaller players like Sony and Olympus etc, and also because they have to manufacture a whole new range of compact lenses to match the compact mirrorless ILC bodies, and the compact lenses are compromised in itself.

dSLR's still the real thing, and mobile phones can't do much to affect dSLR sales.

On the positive side, compacts and dSLR's are eroding the sales of compact camcorders, so 70D's dual pixel technology is great, and Nikon must really catch up...
