Pocket Camera

I have a Nikon D70 with four lenses, a Nikkor 28-80mm, a Sigma 50 macro,a Sigma 105macro & a Sigma 28-300mm.
I also have a Konika Minolta Dimage Z6, which is a great little camera for keeping in the glove compartment of the car, but.........
I am after a decent pocket size camera that will pop into my handbag for times when I go shopping & can't have a camera hanging around my neck, that D70 gets heavy after a while & pulls on my neck, although I am thinking of buying one of those RapidR straps for it.
Any sugestions so that I know what to look for? ( please keep them decent )....
Price range up to about 150.
Will pop back later, so will thank you in advance for all the help I know I will get, because you are such kind helpful people.

I bought a Canon A570IS from the canon outlet. 7mp so good for A4 prints. Manual over-ride on everything if you want. IS lens to keep the ISO speed down. 35-140mm lens is ok 28mm would be good. And CHKD hack on memory card so it shoots RAW as well. Pocket size too.

Not bad for under 60.
