I would be far more interested in a curved sensor...

What are the advantages of a curved sensor?

Curved sensors promise greater sensitivity, better image quality, and provide scope for simpler lenses.

Maybe a curved sensor could eliminate the need for distortion correction in these compact cameras. The downside is I can see where cost of manufacture would be much higher because each one has to be individually bent. We may not see these sensors until ways to mass produce them is devised.
