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.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
