Video: Samsung Ping review reviews the Samsung Ping reviews the Samsung Ping takes a look at the Samsung Ping communicator phone.

This bite-sized device is aimed at heavy texters and social media users and has an unusual form factor to boot.

Besides having a numerical pad along the left-hand side of the screen (as opposed to under it) the phone also houses a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

On top of this there is Facebook, Bebo and Myspace integration as well as the ability to take and upload photos directly to services like Flickr and Photobucket.

The Ping is not for everyone, though. It certainly won’t appeal to people who want a powerful entertainment device or anything approaching a slick smartphone.

Truth be told this is purely for young – probably female – texters and as it’s cheap (around the €99 mark in Ireland) it will likely do very well with them.
