I don't know why anyone would choose this over a proper small sensor compact like the Canon S95.

To me, the withering criticism of the V1's image quality is entirely misplaced. The Nikon V1 is not a replacement for a DSLR! It's a small camera with a smallish sensor that easily outperforms the best high-end compacts at high iso (to judge by the few high-iso samples we've seen). The one criticism I do agree with is the price. For what it costs, its hard to imagine large numbers of "enthusiasts" choosing the V1 over an M43 alternative. The V1's built-in viewfinder is really its only real advantage over the M43 competition.

Nevertheless, Nikon is squeezing alot out of a fairly small sensor, and I wouldn't be surprised to see some of their technology make its way into other cameras for the betterment of all.

I don't know why some you here in these forums find it necessary to dish out such brutal condemnation of things you don't like. Please give it a rest.
