175-degree viewing angle. It will hit the market in April, the company said.

Samsung's largest TV, however, won't hit the market until May. Pricing on the 80-inch high-definition set, dubbed HPR8072, is still to be determined, the company said in a statement. However, it will offer features such as a resolution of 1,920 pixels by 1,080 pixels and 68.7 billion displayable colors.

Samsung will also offer a number of big-screen, rear-projection TV sets, using Texas Instruments' DLP, or digital light projector, chip. Its 67-inch HLR6768W DLP TV will cost $6,999 and offer a resolution of 1,920 pixels by 1,080 pixels. Other DLP models will range in size from 46 inches to 70 inches, Sanduski said.

Although Samsung's CES display is heavy with big-screen TVs, it's also working on tiny portable music players and several other consumer electronics devices, including new DVD recorders.

Its YH-925 music player, based around a 20GB hard drive, will play Windows Media and MP3 music files, and show pictures on a 1.8-inch display. It also comes with a built-in FM radio tuner and voice recorder. The YH-925 will cost $349 and hit the market this month, Samsung said in a statement.

Samsung this month will also offer its YP-MT6 line of slim, flash memory-based digital audio players. The tiny music machines can run continuously for 42 hours on a single AA battery. They will come out this month and range in capacity from 256MB to 1GB and in price from $119 to $199.99, Samsung said.

In addition, the company will offer the YP-T7, a flash memory-based music player with a built-in color display. Two models shipping this month that don't yet have price tags will offer either 512MB or 1GB of storage.

A dual-disc DVD recorder will be among Samsung's other CES debuts. The DVD-TR520, which will cost $499 when it ships in the third quarter, will enable quick DVD copying, Samsung said in a statement.
