Samsung T9000: the Android fridge that runs Evernote

CES 2013 wouldn’t be complete without an internet fridge, and the Android-based Samsung T9000 fits the (shopping) bill this year.
This $4,000 (£2,500) full-size fridge-freezer has a 10in touchscreen LCD running a version of Android - we really hope it's Ice Cream Sandwich, but we can't confirm details.
The display can run calendar and weather applications, but most helpfully comes pre-loaded with Evernote, the multi-platform, cloud-based note-taking app, which means chefs can scribble down shopping lists as the fridge empties and have them synced to a range of devices including Windows PCs, Macs and Chromebooks, as well as Android, Windows Phone and iOS devices.
The fridge can also run photo-viewing and video apps, although it's at a distinct disadvantage to standard Android and iOS devices in that it's frozen out from the Google Play app store.
For those who like their specifications of a more culinary nature, the T9000 offers 25.5 cubic feet of fresh food storage and 6.1 cubic feet of freezer space.
It will be available from late spring.
