Is there a camera smaller, more durable, and faster and turning on and taking pictures than the Canon Powershot SD1000?

I'm looking at purchasing Canon Powershot SD1000.

But if there is a better camera for me, I want to purchase it instead.  My requirements are 3:

durable - I'm going to carry it around in my pocket or shirt pocket or jacket pocket everywhere I go, so it needs to be able to withstand an occasional drop on the ground (hopefully)

small - since I want to carry it everywhere

fast at turning on and taking pictures - I want to be able to turn it on and take my first picture in 1 second or less if possible.  I don't want to wait 5 seconds for a camera to turn on and then have 2 second intervals.  I would prefer at least 2 pictures per second or more once turned on.  The faster it turns on the better.

Thank you for any suggestions you have!

How about in terms of speed?  That is most important to me, as the current camera I have is too slow for me to make regular use of it without being annoyed.
I can't say for sure, as i have not personally used the 1000, but the elphs are known for there speed too, i have a downgraded model, and its up in i think a half a second, to 2 max, and on the correct mode can snap pictures as fast as it is possible to write to the flash card (plus some internal memory to get a bunch in a quick burst.
Okay thanks!

The reviews at usually cover time to ready for first shot, shutter lag, and time between shots, you might check there as well.
