Smallest Handheld VHF?

If someone made a really pocket-sized VHF, I would think that this would be a great bit of safety gear, attached to a lifejacket or stowed in a pocket. Anyone know?

That looks pretty good -- has DSC and a GPS. I could live without AIS. But it doesn't look very compact -- looks like it's designed for divers primarily.

huh? I work at West Marine, it's hard to judge but looks to me like it's smaller than EVERY handheld we sell except maybe the Icom M72

edit: here's a better picture, maybe it is a little fat... but it's still not exactly 'big'
