D3x was ready in 2007 ?

Anyone found any truth in the rumours that the D3x was ready for release back in 2007?

Mr. Rockwell seems to think so.

"Hey - hold on! The EXIF data in most of the the official press images for the D3X are mostly dated from back in June, 2007, the same dates the D3's publicity shots were made! The only newer ones are the shots of the D3X with more recently introduced lenses."

"The Internet is loaded with stories claiming the sensor in the original D3 is already 24MP, and it's just the firmware that throttles it back to 12MP. This is supported by seeing how the D3X cranks out just a few more megapixels per second because it's not burdened with the interpolation that would have to be done in the D3 if the D3 really already has the 24MP sensor."
