London: South Korean electronics maker Samsung has now planned to launch a fridge with a built-in Android tablet and an internet-connected washing machine by the end of the year.
The Samsung refrigerator with Android tablets will help people keep track of ingredients, order groceries and act as baby monitors using built-in cameras.
The company’s flagship washing machines can be controlled remotely using mobile apps, the Telegraph reports.
Russell Owens, Samsung’s head of sales for digital appliances, said the T9000 refrigerator and the 12kg washing machine would be available in Britain later in the year.
Samsung’s flagship web-connected home appliances have previously been available in North America and Asia, but have not been available in Europe.
The T9000 refrigerator was launched at CES in Las Vegas in January.
According to the paper, Samsung suggested that the built-in Evernote application could allow busy couples to share shopping lists as soon as they ran out of something.
