Re: K-3 ...from whence this rumour came ..

Take a look at any K5/II/s SD card slot, cramming in another one would be quite the trick. If they make the body larger, yes.

It would seem that when the D7100 was announced, including their price point, Pentax/Ricoh must have crapped in their collective trousers. P/R were expected to announce the K3 earlier this year... they obviously had second thoughts, regrouped and probably went on double/triple shifts to kick something out only 7 months or so later.

That's a pretty reasonable theory for why the rumored schedule changed so much... they abandoned the earlier prototype.
