During the Asus Eee PC announcements in Germany and Austria last week the GermanAsus press representative Holger Schmidt made a statement to a press agency called pressetext that the Asus 8G would come with a larger 10 inch display.
The dimensions of the Asus 8G with a 10 inch display would stay the same. The Asus Eee PC measures 225x165x35mm (8.8x6.49x1.37inch). A 10 inch screen can fit easily in there. The maximum diagonal is 10.9inch.
If this turns out to be true, I am even more motivated to wait until the Asus Eee 8G becomes available. I have already considered getting an Asus Eee 4G upgraded to 1GB RAM.
The specifications published by Asus initially state a 7 inch display for the 8G also.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
