Go ask your local retailer.
Anyway, the dinky low-end P&S market is being gobbled up by cell phones. Demand for more profitable RX and G1 X type cams will still be strong for years.

I think you missed the point. Anyway you are assuming the RX and G1x type cameras are more profitable than "the dinky low-end P&S market" but you don't know that. You have no idea what the R&D costs for these individual models were; the production costs, or the marketing costs, or indeed the volume sold. I can assure you that some of these cameras, unfortunately, make no profit at all but the manufacturer keeps them in the range for a variety of reasons, one of which is brand image. As a 'halo' product they can often be subsidised by other less glamorous products and treated as a marketing expense.

Demand may well be strong for years but I wouldn't bet my house on that either.
