I was not serious. It would cost Nikon a ton of money to go there into an already crowded, mature, & competitive market.
I use my phone camera for documentation all the time, even though I have a Canon S95. I do believe that the low level Point & Shoots will go the way of the horse & buggy. Too many people don't know the difference between those & the cameras on their smartphones. Either that, or it's not worth the bother to carry both.
