Prices of EEE PCs going to increase?

According to the ASUS CEO, we are going to see a price increase in the ASUS EEE PC begining March 1,2009. He futher added that the price increase can be upto 20% of the current price. The reason behind it? Well, he says that 9-inch netbook market has shifted to the 10-inch netbook market. This shift will increase the production cost.

But he also said that the price rise is not going to be very significant due to the stiff competition from their competitors.
