iphone takes better pictures than most p&s cameras.
Why would you want one?
Get a NEX or m43, a p&s makes no sense anymore...
Depends what you shoot and while I do love my 4s and it can take nice photos and suits my needs, it could be all wrong for someone else's needs.
For example, there is no substitute for a good flash and my iphone is awful for taking snapshots out in a bar etc. Not an issue for me because I don't really have any interest in taking a bunch of shots of a night out with friends and posting them on facebook, but a lot of people do
Likewise, if one enjoys walks in the woods, shooting birds, zoo trips etc, iphone's 30mm equiv isn't going to cut it. superzooms seem to keep lots of birders on a budget quite happy with the 800+mm equiv reach.
Also while the 4s is a great camera, and I love my iPhone in general, not everyone wants to spend $100 a month on a smartphone nor needs ones.
I think a better question than "why would you want one" is why are you so thick and arrogant that you can't realize that people may have different needs than yours ?
Because a guy on an equipment obsessed internet forum named "snowboarder" doesn't need a compact camera therefore nobody could have a need for one right ?
