So far, our local insider gave us a teaser of what could be a possible production ready K3

-It has 20 mega pixels with the IQ of the 645D, did not mention sensor size but was told it was more on the programming to get that IQ

Moving sensor perhaps and stacking in software?

I'd guess that you're on the right track. Since the 645D is approx. 40Mpx, it certainly sounds like this is some trick that effectively doubles sensor resolution. Hasselblad have a system that moves the sensor precisely to achieve 4x resolution in unmoving subjects -- I'm guessing the Ricoh/Pentax approach would be a bit like in-camera HDR, geared more for increased resolution than dynamic range.
