It seems like a no brainer. Samsung is building 8-inch screens into its refrigerator line. Of course it is going to use Android so you can have 200,00 apps on your Honeycomb fridge, right? Even HP picked Android to run its printers (at least until it picked up Palm) -Clearly Android is what everyone wants.
Nope, it looks like Samsung is using its own proprietary, non-Bada embedded OS. Likely due to stability concerns, Samsung went to something that Google doesn’t control. We’ve combed through the 4000 page user manual (PDF) and nary a mention of Android, though some screenshots seem to be reminiscent of its UI (below). Perhaps Samsung (or some hackers) will get Android on there in a future update.
