Samsung Electronics has committed to a grueling product schedule aimed at putting it in the top three spot in the digital sector. The Korean electronics giant aims to top 30 trillion won (US$23.7 billion) in sales and churn out seven leading electronics products by 2005 to emerge as the market leader in digital appliances, according to the company's digital media sector president, Chin Dae-je.
