Samsung just announced their
new SCH-V910 Moneta handset. Moneta is that circa 2001, South-Korean banking service that allows you to make purchases
of just about anything using your bank account-linked cellphone. While you get your mind around that, also consider
that this phone features Traffic Card support for payment on buses and subways and still manages to get heavy with the
specs in such a compact slider: 3G (CDMA2000) with EV-DO, a 262k color TFT display, MP3 media player, 1.3 megapixel
camera, mass storage support, Picsel file viewer for MS Office (and more) files and even a motion sensing GUI -- just
because they can. Needless to say, we won’t ever see this here but it’s good to see what our mobile tech
overlords are doing these days.
