Any idea on the changes and specs?

SX200 - Feb 2009
SX210 - Feb 2010
SX220 - Feb 2011
SX230 - Feb 2011

So my guess is Feb 2012 ;)

I would expect;
Digic V for sure which should lead to slightly better low light performance.
Probably the same CMOS sensor or a slightly tweaked one.
Maybe a bit faster lens but probably the same (14x) zoom range. Maybe 24mm on widest, instead of the current 28mm.
Better video and a few other minor tweaks in the menu system.

Are those announcement or actual available dates?

Given the competition and what Canon did with the S100, a 24mm seems definite.  Hope they decrease the MPs but that may be unlikely.

I picked up the SX230 recently as a Amazon Lighting Deal for $150 as a P&S.. Great little camera for price though had I waited a couple weeks the recent deals on the S95 and the ability to shoot RAW would have been nice..
5DIII | EOS M | 24-105 F/4L | 100-400 F/4.5-5.6L | 70-200 F/4L | 85 F/1.8 | 50 F/1.4 | 580EXII | 22 F/2 M / 18-55 M | Sigma 105mm OS Macro

Any latest updates on what we might be seeing with the successor for the SX230? I'm not even sure it's the 'SX240', hehe. Otherwise I'm getting that deal... $150 is great!

I'm a bit concerned that the f-stop will be too high... and what point would you say that the f-stop is too high for dimly lit rooms, say darker conference halls?
