As for metric versions of the parts, I have a list here for metric equivalents to the Imperial parts.
1. Good-enough optics/sensor. (this is a moving target but it leaves out webcams/etc) Decent. Optics seem to me like Canon standard in this pricerange (5x zoom). As always the sensor noise increases when the ISO is set higher
2. A 1/4 20 tripod mount hole. Yes
3. Manual settings. Some: P-setting where EV, ISO and White Balance can be manually set. Exposure and focus lock is also available
Nice to haves:
4. Remote triggering with no hacks. No
5. DC power input. (Marcos outlined some hacks for this) Yes but pricy. Cheap hardware hack (not on the camera) should be possible
6. PTP support. (is occasionally implemented in CHDK) No
7. Cheap. Yes. Seems US prices are just under $110

I want to use the mechanical trigger so I also wonder if the camera is fast enough? How quick can you push the button again after taking a picture?

The newly announced, but not available till maybe April Polaroid SC1630 (16MP android camera) I posted a note about a few days ago is apparently going to be about $300 from the rumors I've found on the web. I also got an email back from them when I asked saying that they definitely intend to provide android developers full access to control the camera. The only problem with it seems to be that you can't get one yet .
