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.
