They also confirmed that 900 will coexist with 901:
"The news published by DigiTimes is not true. Eee PC 900 and 901 have characteristics and different target sales. Eee PC 900 weighs less than 1Kg; Eee PC 901 will have a battery capable of reaching 7 hours of autonomy. Both models coexist to meet the needs of different categories of users. "
We have seen that similar devices are using 8W/hour on average use.
If Eee PC 901 has 5800mAh ( 43Wh ) 4 cell battery, it could reach to 5.4 hours.
If Asus uses cpu downscaling like on 900, it could reach to 6 hours.
6 hours in real life is good for 7 hours marketing figures...
