Asus and Amazon have just announced a partnership that will see the Kindle for PC software pre-installed on a number of Asus netbooks and laptops.

Apparently, only Asus portable computers sold through Amazon will be lucky enough to come with yet another pre-loaded program. But if you are looking to buy an Asus machine and you really want that Kindle software, don't despair because it's free to download anyway.

Starting "today," the Kindle for PC software will be pre-installed on all four shaded versions of the Asus Eee PC 1005PE-MU27 netbook in black, blue, white and pink. It will also be popping up on the Asus UL series UL30A-X5K and UL30VT-X1K notebook computers. Other models will eventually follow and be announced down the line.
