My thoughts on this are that we need to figure out if the ribbon connectors for the displays are the same...which would require a couple of folks brave enough to open up a 10v and a 10 to find out...
Then maybe we can figure out if Dell will be selling the HD display as a replacement part for the 10 and get a part number?
Or...hmm...was just checking out the SMs for the 1010 and the 1011: Display : Dell Inspiron 1010 Service Manual and Display: Dell Inspiron 1011 Service Manual.
My feeling is that if it's not possible to just swap out the display assembly (TV tuner cables a potential problem?), then the SM for the 1011 makes it look like swapping out just the LCD is an option. These guys look like the best possible source for LCDs: Laptop LCD Screen but they don't have the 1366x768 yet. They also sort of seem to warn against trying to upgrade your resolution...

It's all about playing the odds.
Ask youself - what are the chances that Dell is using different parts to fill the exact same requirement - 1024x576 screen in both the 1010 and 1011? Financially, it makes no sense for them to be double sourcing an otherwise identical part.
Taking that into consideration look next at the 1010 and the screen options. Users have the option of the higher resolution screen. What are the chances that Dell would screw themselves into having to change a motherboard just to change an LCD panel... Low - which means that the two LCD's should likely be freely interchangable with only a minor bezel removal, or at most, also swapping out the LCD cable along with the screen.
Keep on extrapolating....
If the 1010 and 1011 have interchangeable screens, and the 1010 has two freely interchangable screens, then the second screen in the 1010 should be interchangable with the 1011. It's like a logic problem.
It would make sense for an experimenter to get both the screen and the cable and swap both at the same time.
