My own guess of A6000 development timeline:

September/October 2012: development of NEX-6 replacement prototype options start as soon as model is launched

September/October/November 2013: field testing of various prototypes (as many as five, including DSLR 'format' and 'brick format).  Procurement of base components and manufacture of common components starts

December 2013: final decision on which prototype to use based on:

  • Orders and pre-orders of A7, A3000 and NEX-5T in run-up to Christmas
  • Feeback from field testing
  • Market surveys (Focus groups, marketing surveys and public perception from DPReview, SAR etc etc)

December/January 2013: production line finalised and assembly of new model starts and marketing is planned.  Certification applied for, documentation and packaging prepared

February 2013: model announced

May 2013: first cameras start shipping
