I miss my cheap point & shoot

We've always had a inexpensive point & shoot camera at work to use on inspections and safety issues. They have usually been Sony brand, and took decent pictures. This last one was a Polaroid a800, and it was discarded because it took "blurry photos". I dug it out of the trash can and carried it for quite a while in my shirt pocket. Long story short, there was nothing wrong with it, and I broke it today. I was satisfied with the performance. Should I buy another a800, or is there a better value out there in that price range? I NEVER go anywhere without my DSLR, but I've caught some photos that I otherwise would have missed by having the P&S in my pocket, rather than in a 25lb bag in the back seat.
