Kodak hasn't made anything even tolerable since the V1073. It needed a wider angle lens and greater control options, but the 1/1.63" 11 MP CCD was comparable to the current premium compacts. It had a nicely understated body that was quite pocketable and was one of the earliest cameras to add 720p video.

Why did Kodak abandon what was clearly a better direction for them?

Also, that doesn't seem to have stopped Panasonic. The DMC-FZ47 does 1080p30 on a 12.5 MP 1/2.33" CCD.

CMOS will reach full HD more easily than CCD, but there's nothing preventing a CCD that size from producing 720p.
