Here's an interesting deal that once again illustrates Google's push to get their software apps used by more people. Lexar, the well-known maker of USB flash drives, announced today a partnership with Google that will bring Google applications like Picasa, Google Toolbar and Google Desktop Search pre-loaded onto Lexar USB Drives.
In other words, buy a USB flash drive and also get some Google software.
Customers who purchase a Lexar JumpDrive simply have to plug the device into the USB port, on their computer, where the user will be prompted with instructions to easily install the free applications. If the user accepts installation, Google products automatically install to their computer and are then removed from the USB flash drive.
Lexar USB Drives pre-loaded with Google software will begin to roll-out in the next few weeks.
