Cant say ive seen one. Theres possibly a good reason for this, why on earth would you want to watch a blu-ray on a ~8" screen? You would never get a high enough res panel for it to be worth it, even then the difference between a dvd and a bluray HD movie would be non exsistent on a panel that size

Hi I know what you mean about the screen size it is more for using outside during summer as I am no longer buying DVD's only blu ray and unfortunately very few come with a digital copy or a DVD. It is more of a convienience thing. I have a nice home theatre setup for action movies etc. But some don't really require the full monty etc

I've never seen any in NZ. They are available though, I saw a very nice Panasonic one when I was in the USA last year.

They aren't cheap though - around US$800 for the Panasonic one I was looking at.
