CES 2006: Samsung's programmable high-tech refrigerator

Las Vegas (NV) - And in refrigerator news...At Samsung's booth, while we spotted the new XMP3 Player (XM Satellite Radio plus Flash memory for time shifting or MP3 storage), several HD display offerings, and the iPod nano competitor YP-Z5 (2 or 4 GB with a monthly $15 music subscription flat fee), the coolest piece we discovered - literally - was the RM255BARB refrigerator.

This stainless steel package, full-size fridge comes with four independent chambers that can be programmed to either cool or fridge their content (arctic or fresh select zones). Two convertible drawers allow for nice flexibility. Geeks will love the blue LC display at the front that allows for programming and operating the fridge. (Seems, at this point, there should be a cue for Bob Barker.)

According to Samsung, the device will be priced at around $3,500...peanuts.

Exclusive coverage of CES 2006, including other refrigerators, microwaves, dishwashers, and other fine home appliances, continues throughout the day, from TG Daily and the network of TG Publishing.
