No. It will just be another small camera that needs big lenses. Imagine the equivalent lens to the 30-110 the Canon needs.

It will compete with u4/3rds. The Nikon N1 system is unique.

while I agree with you in theory and I think, that 1" is a sweetspot for compact camera, if you look at Sony nex 16/2.8 or 16-50 or some samsung nx primes and compare them with similar nikon 1 lenses, you will be very surprised.

In my opinion it's also a matter of flange distance/sensor size ratio, which in nikon 1 is much higher than in other mirrorless cameras. (this probably also have it's advantages, but the size is not likely to be one of them)
