ASUS and Amazon to pre-install Kindle for PC on netbooks and laptops

Posted in ASUS by Conner Flynn on May 24th, 2010

Since ASUS sells a lot of laptops through Amazon.com and since Amazon happens to offer a Kindle for PC application, they figured they would team up and pre-install the app on the ASUS netbooks and laptops that are sold through the online e-tailer. Makes sense right?

So starting today, select laptops, like the Eee PC 1005PE and UL30, will be sold with the e-book app already loaded up. While we don’t generally like pre-installed software cluttering up our new devices, this makes sense.

And we’re all for getting these computer buying kids to read.
