Artist Nathan Sawaya has constructed an oversized model of the BlackBerry Tour 9630 smartphone using nothing but Lego blocks.

A New York-based artist, 36-year-old Sawaya was commissioned by RIM to build the replica. He is no stranger in the smartphone-Lego game, having built a giant Lego iPhone back in 2008.

"I was commissioned to create a giant Blackberry Tour 9360 smartphone out of Lego bricks. But there was a catch. It couldn't be just a static replica; it needed to have a video screen that really worked. Fun," wrote Sawaya on his blog

"After some trial and error, I embedded a flat screen TV into my brick sculpture to get the effect of having working video in this oversized brick smartphone."

The phone stands at around 1.5 metres tall and comes with a working LCD screen. It will be making a tour of the US as Sawaya takes his "art of the brick museum show" on the road.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
