We've already seen the pre-announcement of the Ricoh GR Digital, and according to many forums the birth of the Ricoh Caplio R3 is imminent. Even the PictBridge webpage over at CiPa, our always reliable source for rumor confirmation, has listed the R3. Of course, now the CiPa page will never be the same again...
