My guess:

K300D (K-x): Based on the K-m. 12mp Sony sensor. Live view. (alternatively the 14,6,p sensor)
K30D: A K20D with the same sensor. More FPS, Live view in the finder. Possibly updated AF.

Thats all for rhis year....

I don't think they'd call that upgrade to the K20d a K30d. More like a K20d mk2 Sapporo Edition or something. To get a full model upgrade it would have to have some more significant improvements. Assuming they are smart and don't run the MP race, something like 14.6mp, iso12800, 5fps, new AF, HD video.

I don't see K-m as a flawed product in fact it is (IMO) a very nice little camera. But a variant with those few updates I suggested may appeal to other target audience (more advanced users).
Very true...a few updates would make it better and hopefully boost DPR's weird rating. I think it's fine for newbies the way it is now though...they don't want to deal w/ stuff...they just want to use it as a fancy P&S

For the K20D super, there's no way than can squeeze ISO12800 into it...ISO6400 looks like a science project already

FF or KxD will be 2010.

Well look at K10D -> K20D improvements. IMO they will call it K30D even if only for marketing reasons.
