Yes, that is interesting; thanks for posting.

It does say "Privia" on the top panel, so, yes, it would appear to be the replacement for the PX-3. It looks like the back plate may have been removed so that you can't see the model name.

I really like the addition of the laptop/tablet pad. I find that very useful on my XW-P1 for running VB3 at gigs.

I'm thinking a bit more than that. A workstation, a mix of the XW-P1 and the PX-350. The section in the back where the CASIO logo is as interesting to me as the sliders and knobs.

That looks like where you can attach some sort of support/rest for your device.

Yes, I thought that too. I'm wondering if they didn't develop an app for it too.
That opens up some interesting possibilities, editing, sequencing etc. It has the USB and transport controls.

You and me both. I'm hoping that Casio applied their AIR engine to produce some nice authentic and dynamic Rhodes and Wurly EP's, similar to how well the AP's came out.

I'm going to pull a WAG out that it's just the existing line repackaged with UI and IO changes. Sink a bunch of design time into the base electronics and keybed platform, and build out several products (slab, slim console, upright, stage). I'd be surprised if they are already revving the sound engine.

Seconded. When I first heard a demo of the Wurly, I actually did think it was already AIRed, and I felt like a fool when I got my PX-330 to find that it was only TWO velocity levels, with a hard switch! Our ears are easily deceived when we are not actually playing. (well, mine are)

Would people have a need for a removable HD/SSD drive in a keyboard?

Will this utilize gigabytes of sound source files?

Will this play software plug-ins without an external computer?

Can you describe where you see Privia on the top panel?

EDIT: I see it in the dark strip now that I downloaded and flipped the image.

On the end of the dark band that runs along the top of the control panel, nearest the camera.

I am glad that you responded Mike.

I just realized I was mistaking James for you and thought his words were coming from Casio's perspective.
