All I'm saying is it it's K-3 III, I'm calling it the K3 Cubed.

I thought K-2 would be K-1 successor

I was just looking at the drawing of the camera for the wifi etc registration and noticing that the name on the base plate is omitted again - I agree with Adam - what's intersting is that they are being so cagey about the name (also, remember when they didn't ant to show the bottom ofthe camera? - subsequet views show noting out of the ordinary) - so a poll within a poll - is this because:
1) they haven't decided yet
2) it refers to some feature they want to keep under wraps
3) They over-ordered black tape and need to use it up somehow
4) - they have to keep adding another I
5) Somerhing else.

Pentax boxed them selves into a corner with the K-7 / K-5 / K-3 / K-1 countdown; leaves K-2 maybe, but then what will the NEXT one after that be called?
I tossed in my vote for K-C (although, shouldn't it be KC without the dash like the KP? Hmm, but we had -x, -m, -r, -S1 and -S2 as well... ) because I like the centennial touch (and the analogon with LX for 60 years), although it will probably only come out when you can't construct any time frame where we're still in the 100th year...

But the more I think about it, the more I like K-2. Especially with the bigger viewfinder, this could be the name to bridge the gap between the recent APS-C flagship K-3 and the full frame K-1... but you're right, what could a K-1 successor be called then... well... let's not worry about tomorrows problems today

Is there a reason why the even numbers have been skipped? No K-6 / K-60 or K-4 / K-40?

I think Pentax might avoid K2 considering the drug connotatation that some will toss around. Of course there is that mountain.
