Start saving for LG has exclusively revealed to Tech Digest that a new version of the near-legendary Internet fridge is heading for the stores in 2004. The original fridge was a huge American style cool box that featured a mini PC (running Windows 98), an LCD screen and TV tuner. Its owners, who rumour has it are largely made up of Premiership footallers, can use the device to surf the net, send and receive e-mail, play MP3s, take pictures and videos of themselves and watch TV. It sold for between £6-8000.
We know little about the new version of the fridge, except that is likely cheaper, run using Windows XP and feature a pull out LCD screen. We also suspect it will have wireless facilities enabling it to feature as part of a Wi-Fi (802.11b) home network.
