a800 rumor - where did it come from?

"Sony Japan is no longer listing the A700 on its website. The coming replacement, thought to be called the A800 and similar in appearance to the A700, will have a 15-MP CMOS sensor, an ISO range of 100–12,800, 6.5 fps, and integrated Wi-Fi."

Are those first few specs enough to get people interested, or will everyone throw up their arms and ask how Sony can compete with 6.5 fps when Canon's 7D has 8? Integrated Wi-Fi...that would be a first at this level of camera, or is it a first camera with it built in at all? I know at least a few have grips with it added.
