I'd be more interested in a firmer date than firm specs at this point, considering we'd know how reliable the spec lists are.
Honestly, I hope they include a pop-up flash like the 7D as well, but it wouldn't be a deal breaker.
They couldn't (well, wouldn't) make a xD series that's smaller than the 7D.
I'm not going to get too lathered up about any specs either until CR gives it a CR2 or CR3. I highly doubt SD will happen since the 7D uses CF like the 5D . . . I think an articulating screen (which I like because I can protect the screen AND turn it off by manually flipping it inside) is as likely if SD makes it into the camera.
I'm gonna call this myth busted
