Samsung shows LCD fridge

Samsung on Monday announced it has released the RFG299 French Door Refrigerator with a 7-inch touchscreen LCD that not only allows users to control the refrigerator's temperature or monitor its water filter status, but also access integrated calendars, schedules, photos, nutrition facts and unit conversions. Apart from the built-in gadget, the fridge has the largest capacity of any standard-sized refrigerator with a French door design, at 28.5 cubic feet, Samsung claims. The company achieved a 14 percent bump in capacity compared to its older French door design by using high-rate urethane insulation technology to reduce the wall thickness.

The fridge also uses LED lighting that offers better internal illumination and is Energy Star-compliant. It also sports a door alarm that will go off when any of the three doors are left open for longer than two minutes.

Now available in stainless steel at Best Buy, the Samsung RFG299 French Door Refrigerator is priced at $3,099. Other colors, including stainless platinum, black and white, are expected to join the range in the future.
