Samsung Electronics introduces its Wireless ICE (Interactive, Communication, Entertainment) Refrigerator. The 25 cubic foot refrigerator features a detachable 10.4-inch wireless TFT (Thin Film Transistor) touch-sensitive LCD Pad, allowing it to serve as both a dedicated food storage appliance and a family information center. The 10.4-inch LCD Pad is touch sensitive, allowing families to navigate functions and find information through simple on-screen buttons. The LCD Pad incorporates a digital schedule and calendar to highlight important dates, as well as a digital memo pad. The unit can also be used to leave family messages in voice or text form. A stylus pen is included to handwrite messages for a more personal touch.

The Wireless ICE Refrigerator makes it easy for busy families to track and organize both fresh foods and leftovers with a system of food management functions. The touch screen features a Detail Memo function and provides users with information on optimal food storage based on category. The refrigerator can also be set to remember expiration [IMG_36531] dates for different products and can generate on-screen alerts when items are too old to eat. The digital wireless LCD Pad receives its signal from a Samsung-supplied transmitter that consumers install in their existing home entertainment systems. Two additional video inputs allow the ICE Pad to receive DVD / VCR and radio programming wirelessly as well.

A sound system with two speakers provides sound from TV programs, and from the built-in digital AM/FM radio. The ICE Pad is detachable from the refrigerator, so it can travel from room to room and be conveniently placed wherever a TV is needed temporarily, or used at a desk or table for in depth family scheduling and kitchen organization. The Samsung Wireless ICE Refrigerator carries an MSRP of $3,499 , and is currently available at Lowes. For more information please visit www.samsung.com .
