Nikon just unveiled its new Coolpix S710 compact digital camera, this model features a 14.5 megapixel sensor, 3" LCD display and 3.6x optical zoom:
The COOLPIX S710 delivers photographic performance that exceeds expectations of the most compact dimensions among competing compact digital cameras*. Imaging power begins with 14.5 effective megapixels of sharp resolution from the new 1/1.72-inch CCD image sensor. The precision optics of a new 3.6x Zoom-NIKKOR lens support true wide-angle through medium-telephoto shooting with a focal range of 28-101mm (35mm format equivalent). Image processing based on Nikon's innovative EXPEED digital image-processing concept yields high-resolution images with clarity and true-to-life color, all at a high speed that contributes to efficient and stress-free camera operation.

The stylish contours and fine finish of the COOLPIX S710's stainless steel body conceal the heart of a true high performance camera. Designed to allow users to capture special moments at will, the COOLPIX S710 delivers the control that photographers want for creative fun and freedom, including Programmed Auto [P], Shutter-priority Auto [S], Aperture-priority Auto [A], and Manual [M] exposure modes.

Quality operation and controls receive as much attention. For example, the 3.0-inch LCD monitor offers a bright and large image that makes it a pleasure to use, even out in the sun. And the surrounding large control buttons and the user-friendly Rotary Multi Selector are carefully positioned to provide intuitive operation.
More details at Nikon. While 14.5 megapixels sounds pretty impressive I wonder what impact this will have on the image quality..
