Asus working on 8″ and 8.9″ screens for Eee PC, soon offer Windows XP

Due to customer demand Asus plans on offering versions of the Eee PC 4G and 8G with Windows XP pre-installed. They are also working on Eee PC with 8″ and 8.9″ screen and better batteries. They also state that once Intel supports WiMax they will be releasing a WiMax enabled Eee PC shortly their after. Unfortunately, they may be sticking with the current Celeron processor for the foreseeable future. One concern with the upgrades was a price increase, luckily though TechReport says that Asus plans to try and keep pricing below $500.  Exact pricing on the Windows XP Eee PC is still undetermined but the systems should be available by the end of the quarter.
