It has to be possible for under 400$.
I suppose if some miraculously cheaper method for manufacturing large CMOS/CCD sensors is discovered, it could happen, but not currently.
I can't see a company investing in something so minimal in a digital camera. Without a screen to review images, you're taking away one of the main reasons to shoot digital, the ability to shoot properly without excessive chimping not withstanding.
