Caught this from the Sony Alpha Rumors website this morning:

Thank you for contacting Sony Support. I understand that your concern is regarding the A-mount being replaced by the E-mount system. The A-mount units have always been the flagship ever since the release of the very first Sony Alpha camera. Much like the Single Lens Translucent (SLT) technology, the E-mount system is an innovation, introduced to further expand our interchangeable lens line, and in no way a replacement for the A-mount system. Rest assured thatwe will further develop the A-mount system together with the E-mount, introducing new technology and upgrading features. We will continue to expand our lens and accessory selection, as well as better the functions of the cameras to adapt to our customers growing needs and wants. We currently do not have advanced information on the release of cameras, lenses and accessories, as well as software and firmware updates. Sony Electronics only releases full product and support information at the same time it is officially released to the marketplace by our Marketing Department. However, some limited advanced information is often published in various magazine articles. You may also check the Sony Support and Sony Store website below for news and updates in the future.

This is where I'd normally write an impressive summary of my skills and proficiencies.

We currently do not have advanced information on the release of cameras, lenses

I think that qualifier may negate the whole statement.

This is an example of what TrojMacReady wrote about in one of the replies above. You are picking out a string of text and leaving out the part which explains WHY they haven't advanced information. 'Sony Electronics only releases full product and support information at the same time it is officially released to the marketplace by our Marketing Department.'  As I see it, this is Sony's policy, not that they don't have plans, they just choose to keep silent about it. Then one can be happy with that or not.
