My guess is that they now have product line for every market area, they will now see which one makes the biggest profit and ditch the nonprofit unpopular produt line models in the future. I think there's too much overlapping for them to keep up all the model lines. Especially on the highend product lines.

Cyber-shot (small sensors)
RX100 (big sensors)
RX1 (bigger sensor)
NEX (interchangeable lenses)
Alpha (Nice big body)

More like:
Cyber-shot -- heading to extinction due to competition from phones
RX100 -- small sensor, zoom lenses
RX1 -- large sensor, fixed-focal lenses
NEX -- interchangeable
alpha -- to be phased out as soon as NEX is faster

Honestly, I can't see small-sensor cameras surviving for more than a few more years. 1" sensor size is decent enough to stay for considerable time as the benchmark camera -- and too large to fit in a reasonable size phone.

Maybe there's room for RX10 -- something with a limited zoom (like 28-70 equivalent) and a notably larger sensor (somewhere around 1.75× smaller than FF)?
