And the next Samsung Tizen based product is… a smart fridge

The outlines of Samsung’s not so secret plan for Tizen world domination are becoming more and more clear.

They know they don’t have a chance to break the Google’s and Apple’s dominance of smartphone market anytime soon. So Samsung is creating an end-run around it. Have Tizen run everything else, and with little time and luck smartphones may take care of themselves.

They already started down this path with smart camera, are working on a smart TV, talking to car manufacturers about In-Vehicle-Infotanment systems, and will soon launch one more Tizen based product…

A smart fridge.

Yep. You heard it right. According to Korean DDaily, Samsung plans to announce its Tizen based Smart Refrigerator during CES early next year.

The fridge will have a built-in PAD with big display, and will run on Nexell’s Application Processor with either 512 or 256MB of RAM, Wi-Fi b/g/n support and a few gigs of built-in flash storage.

Why would you need such thing for your fridge?

I’m sure Samsung will think of something. Streaming latest video news or YouTube clips during breakfast, reminding that milk is getting stale, or recommending interesting recipes, for starters.

Or, maybe, just the bragging rights for the title of the biggest geek in the neighborhood will be enough for you to get one.
