Number 4 is not very popular in Japanese culture.
I'm sure they will revise the E-P3, to continue the Pen tradition.

Nikon D4
Nikon F4
Olympus OM-4

There's even a case of a Minolta camera, the Alpha Sweet II L, being marketed as the Maxxum 4 in the US and the Dynax 4 in Europe...

The only reason 4 was skipped in the Olympus DSLR line is because they started going with odd numbers. Even numbers are included with the PENs, as evidenced by the fact that there was an E-P2. Skipping a number will look silly and I'm sure Olympus' marketing knows it.
