Whirlpool Brand Refrigerator Integrates Latest Gadgets - iPod Speaker System, Web Tablet with Organizational Software and Message Center
LAS VEGAS -- The kitchen is increasingly known as the "family nerve center," where dinner is cooked, friends and family gather, kids do homework and parents pay bills. Whirlpool brand has incorporated these kitchen consumer insights into the development of the centralpark(TM) connection, a refrigerator (Model # GD5VVAXT) with a plug-and- play platform, adding functionality for today's digital consumer. More than 30 percent* of laptop computer, digital photo frame and digital music player owners currently use their devices in the kitchen -- making the centralpark(TM) connection a natural step in appliance evolution. The product also helps today's digital consumer clear their countertops while powering their devices in one centralized location: the refrigerator.
With the life cycle of appliances being significantly longer than that of consumer electronics, Whirlpool brand's platform offers industry-first flexibility. The centralpark(TM) connection allows consumers to update their electronics at anytime so multiple devices can be used interchangeably right on the refrigerator door. Consumers also may remove the devices for a more standard refrigerator facade.
