Rumor from Korea: entry level Nikon D5000 @ PMA

According to Slrclub the next entry level Nikon DLSR will be the D5000: near D90 quality pictures, no AF motor just like D40/60, more than 3 points AF.

Is this going to be Nikon’s solution for the next entry level model number – D5000?

Update: here is better translation of the above text (thanks k):

“Nikon plans to announce a new D5000, which would follow the D40, D60 line of entry level DSLR. Specific details are to be revealed on the day of the announcement, however, it is said to have improvements on the 3 focus points (i think 9 would be just fine), and the performance in terms of image would be almost identical to D90. This is according to a person he/she know in Nikon headquarters, who claims to have received an official document mentioning the above. Also, like D40 and D60, restrictions on AF motor will stay.”
