New Samsung NX10 and K-mount adapter

According to

http://www.photographybay.com/2010/01/09/samsung-nx10-hands-on-review/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+PhotographyBay+

the new Samsung NX10 will have a K mount adapter. I quote from the review:

In addition to the three kit lenses already announced, Samsung representatives confirmed that a Pentax K-mount adapter will be available at the launch of the NX10. A K-mount adapter will be a great resource for those willing to manually focus, or those who are looking at heavily using the NX10 as a video camera

Now, will this K mount adapter work with autofocus, or just in manual mode? I'm not familiar at all with adapters and autofocus, but it will be great to have a Samsung NX10 as a second camera working with the same lenses. Not to mention Samsung 30mm F2 pancake, which seems a great lens.

So, what are the chances of Samsung to provide an adapter for NX10 that would make autofocus possible with Pentax FA and DA lenses?
