Eee PC getting bigger battery and storage… again?

DigiTimes is reporting that Asustek, maker of the Eee PC, expects to increase battery life and storage capacity by the end of this year. The report is exceptionally light, with no concrete numbers and vague promises

Asustek Computer expects to introduce new features for its Eee PC range including “whole-day” battery life and Internet storage.

The question now seems to be, is “whole-day” the same as “One Day Computing”? As reported previously, there seems to be an Eee PC with an extended life battery available, not to mention plenty of storage room.

Recently the company did announce plans to include 3G connectivity to their increasingly popular mini-notebook, adding further fuel to the mini notebook fire. Could it be these external accessories that have sparked the report?
