Has Asus forgotten what the Eee PC was all about?

I thought that the Eee PC was all about packing as much punch into a small, cheap package as possible. If that's the case then why is Asus continually making the Eee bigger, faster, and more expensive?

Here's the latest (as yet unconfirmed) rumor by DigiTimes:

The Eee PC 904 and 905 will adopt Atom processors and the major difference between the two and the previous 901 model is that they feature a bigger keyboard. Asustek is still evaluating whether to make changes to the two models' battery and storage capacity.

Last month Asus unveiled the Eee 1000 series which featured a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU and a massive (by Eee standards) 10" screen. Once you're picking a system with a 10" screen then as i see it you might as well go 12" or 13" and take the small notebook direction instead.

I'd rather see the Eee get smaller and cheaper, not larger and more expensive, but either this is a hoax or Asus has grown tired of the tiny Eee.
