There's been some recent hubbub about a Sony Alpha DSLR—apparently it's the Sony Alpha 100. No official announcement has been made tying the name to the model (there should be one soon), but here's what Sony's released about the specs.
Some of the highlights: 10.2 megapixels, 2.5" LCD screen, Sony Alpha-mount lens compatibility including Sony G lenses and Carl Zeiss optics, burst shooting (6 RAW frames, 3 RAW+JPEG frames), CF support and a 1600 mAh battery that lasts 750 shots.
This cam will be available in Europe around around July and cost around $1000.
