According to the Chinese language China Times and an article from Commercial Times, it appears the Eee will be finally be getting a version of Windows XP soon (presumably for the old as well as new models), as well as a larger 8.9" screen.
The article also states that the cost of a 7" panel for the original Eee is $40 while the 8.9" panel will be $55 - 60. With only a $15 to $20 difference between the two screens, that's not too bad, and I might even be tempted into one of these, particularly with XP.
More to come when CES starts.
