I thought it might be interesting to rate the amount of prominence Pentax gave to each model. So, here goes . . .

High
Pentax Q10 - They had a lot of displays, the Evangelion model and a counter devoted to it, showing the mount cap lens.
Ricoh GR Digital - They had a display revealing that a new model is coming, a counter at the front and a lot of exhibited pictures, including a huge one on the outside of the booth.

Medium
Pentax WG series - The had displays and models to try out.
K mount cameras - They had a counter, a lot of pictures, a dark room to test the AF and a display of all the lenses they make.

Low
GXR - They had a counter, but that was it. Unlike the GRD, there was no teasing of a future release. When asked, the staff were saying "no comment about future products".
MX-1 - They had a few on display, but I was expecting more. Perhaps they're aiming this more at international markets.
645 - They had a counter.
X-5 - They had the products on display.

Non-existant
K-01 - Not shown anywhere, just my picture and one other were shown in the gallery. It is no longer in production. The XS lens was not displayed with the other K-mount stuff.
Ricoh CX series
Ricoh PX
It seems the relevance is opposite to the age of the product: exceptions are the MX-1, which has been stated that for now is a product just for the overseas market, and the empty case for the GRD, that smells of Ricoh having not been able to finalize the camera for the show, contrary to what was planned. That Ricoh was going to show a "new camera" at the CP+ has been said for some time...
