Others have already responded to this, but just take a look at this Viking79's feature request thread: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53145467 to get an idea for the kind of things that NX1 needs to be "serious".

Samsung needs to have a camera, that is utterly reliable and responsive in ways, that we've learned to have our DSLR's. No lag, no waiting for buffer to clear, AF-lock button, good mechanical quality, weather sealing, etc etc. There's a lot of basic features that the Samsung cameras don't offer that you can get from a very cheap DSLR (like no lag and better AF features).

Actually, even my 60D had some lag clearing the buffer. My A57 though was a screaming demon in terms of shooting, but it lacked much in terms of external controls, had no weather sealing, was plastic, etc.

Everything is a compromise. Maybe the NX1 will be all that, but you can't expect E-M1 features at an A57 price. All brands have their lower end models.

The NX30 is a little pricey for what you get, though, that's true. A $1000 camera should have a bit more in terms of build quality and perhaps a next gen sensor rather than the same basic one with a bit of modification.
