Nikon actually did some pretty amazing innovation and engineering with their Nikon 1 line, but it was improperly packaged, positioned and priced and, in most parts of the world, it had little impact on the market or on their profitability. If they could aim that level of innovation where most of their customers are (the APS-C product line), they could probably do some pretty amazing things.

I'll say it again- the Nikon 1 line would have, and potentially still can be, a huge success if Nikon gives it cell phone capabilities. But Nikon hast to be willing to take that kind of risk.

My belief is quite the opposite. Nikon has no reason to get into the mobile business madness.

Had Nikon given it a bigger sensor, Nikon 1 would be huge now. But they were afraid that it would cannibalize their low end DSLRs. And by not doing it, they let the door open to somebody else to do it.
