A year ago now I had a short e-mail conversation with a representative at Sigma UK. I was asking about a followup to SD10, and writing about the possibility of on board JPEG-compression and such. Also I asked if my waiting and high hopes was in vain. I just wanted to give them some customer input. Surprisingly I got an answer. I only told one friend about this so far, but today I decided to publish it here at my favourite digicam site.
Bear in mind that this is a year old, which makes me wonder if we're very close to an announcement, or if Sigma and Foveon decided to cancel the projects. Open for speculation.

Dear (Palegolas' real name)

Many thanks for your kind comments.

It is possible that Sigma will be launching two new SLR's later this year and I
am sure your patience will be rewarded as the suggestions of customers and
experts have been noted.

Kind regards

PS. I switched computer since I got this and forgot to copy my sent e-mails during the switch, so I can't provide you with the original e-mail that I sent to Sigma.
