A few quick ideas:

Resample the image at double or quadruple the original resolution to add additional pixels, thus smoothing the overall effect. I call this "Hamburger Helper" ;-).

Add grain using Photoshop or a plug-in to roughen up the look, adding perceived sharpness.

Blur the image slightly.

Apply a filter effect that moves the pixels around a bit.

Use an upscaling plug-in (see under "Resampling/interpolation" here).
Free digital imaging ezine (and discounted plug-ins!)
