Wild rumor: 36mp Nikon D800 coming on October 26?

Digicame-info rumorizes (computer translated) that Nikon will reveal a 36-megapixel Nikon D800 on October 26, about the same time as Canon's planned announcement. Burst mode at 4fps in 35mmFF, and 6fps in DX with grip (via Foto Actualidad)

With APS-C sensors going to 24-megapixels, it is certainly not a big leap to go to 36mp at 35mmFF. In recent interviews after the launch of the Nikon CX system, Nikon representatives hyped the speed/throughput of their new CX engine. If this new technology is scalable to 35mmFF sensors, and if it found its way into the rumored D800, then 4fps at 36-megapixels (144mp/second) sounds rather slow? Sony is cranking 12fps at 24mp (288mp/second) with the A77 and 10fps at 24mp (240mp/second) with the A65.

Please note this is a wild rumor, but a testable rumor since October 26 is just a few weeks away.
