Not true - I have used a DP2.

Even though I liked using it, I would not call it P&S, because it was somewhat more elaborate to use it than point and shoot. I have to admit though that I used it mainly in manual mode.

A P&S camera is called so because its main use is point and shoot. A novice shall be able to pick it up, turn it on and point and shoot. And the result shall be acceptable to the novice.

There is of course another kind of P&S - the advanced P&S, e.g. used by experienced photographers for street photography or why not sports and news photographers. Almost all advanced cameras can be put in a P&S mode.

But usually you mean a simple camera when talking about P&S. Then a fix focus, small sensor, large DOF camera is to prefer.
