Amazon has teamed up with Asus to pre-install its Kindle for PC application on netbooks/laptops that are sold through Amazon.com. The e-book application will only come preloaded on select devices including the Eee PC 1005PE.
Whilst I agree the idea makes sense, personally I’m not too fond of pre-installed apps when I buy a new netbook / laptop. In fact to keep things fresh, the first thing I usually do is re-install the OS to get rid of the clutter. Also, the thought of actually reading a book on an LCD display for long periods fills me with pain. Now bring this onto a Pixel-Qi equipped device and it becomes a different story altogether.
