Lego cell phone pictures leaked

Danish toy giant Lego has designed a cell phone that allows users to change its colors with the company's signature interlocking blocks, leaked photos indicate.

Photos of the prototype appearing on Web site boygeniusreport.com revealed the casing of the phone is made from colorful Lego blocks that can be snapped into place and replaced with bricks of other colors when users become bored of the hues, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday.

The prototype phone includes a music player, a walkie-talkie and a digital camera, The Telegraph said.

The the phone, which was developed with children's electronics company Digital Blue and cell phone giant Alcatel, is expected to make its official debut next week at the Mobile World Congress, the cell phone industry's trade show in Barcelona, Spain.
