Does K-x use Kelvin for white balance temp?

I'm thinking of getting a K-x and I'm wondering if the white balance can be displayed in Kelvins? I manually adjust all settings and I'd rather be able to fine tune white balance and not have preset generic settings like "tungsten", "daylight", "shade", etc. like I have in my current camera (K100D Super). I can't find the answer anywhere else like on other forums or the Pentax site. Thanks!

as far as i know you can't display or select WB value in kelvins, but you can manually set white balance and also fine tune the various camera presets

A quick read of the manual confirms matam's explanation.

On the K-7 white balance can be set in Kelvin.
