I think the 1" sensor was a big mistake, and I think they realize it. The tricky part is how to start something new when you've already made a pretty big commitment to a small sensor. I think they'll let the 1 fade away for a couple years, all the while developing a killer APS-C competitor.
I don't think the 1" sensor was a mistake at all. Point and shoot cameras are going away, there is just no growth in that sector of the digital camera market now, so Nikon had to come up with some alternative for the low end. Is it the camera you or I wanted? Likely not, but I suspect it's more important for Nikon to have an answer to the death of P&S cameras than a response to m43 and similar mirrorless competition.
I just hope Nikon's working on a mirrorless FX camera too, as the only other competition in that space right now is Leica, and that's just such a different ballgame.
