Slider phones seems to be my latest bag. So I am happy to present that PT-S280 slider from Pantech & Curitel. What makes this phone stand out from the usual slew of crap Korean phones is the included Moneta software. Moneta is a banking application capable of performing money transfers, balance checking, etc. The mobile banking project has been around in Korea for some time, but it is just now really taking off overseas. If trends follow the same path, then maybe some better Moneta-esque applications can hit mobile handsets stateside soon.

This phone also has a 2-inch display, camera, and more.
