It is more likely that there willl be an upgrade rather than
replacement for the A100. All the other cameras usiing the 10Mp
chip have better noise levels at high ISO so it is possible that
Sony may want to make some improvement.

Better hi ISO capability would really make it competative, and a
total elimination of "lazy eye problems" would the A100 the
perfect camera for the entry level.... I am not sure what they
can do to improve focusing speed, but that would be the only
other deficiency the camera really has that seems to be making
me and many others hesitant to make the plunge.

If Sony addresses those issues, I would bet that sales would
be much better, because almost every reviewer had an issue
with focus speed compared to Nikon... it was said in the same
breath as the accolades for the camera. Pics taken at ISOs
under 400 or 800 all seem to be second to nobody.
