A digital apparatus amateur in northeast China has become a local household name after making a colossal mobile phone all by himself.

Jilin-based City Evening News reports the king-size phone, 621 times larger than the prototype of a Nokia handset, is 92 centimeters in height, 44 in width and 17 centimeters thick.

Mr. Tan, a local resident in Songyuan city, made an aluminum shell for his big phone that weighs 22 kilograms and added the Olympic logos, including the five-color rings and the Beijing Olympic emblem, on the back of the mobile phone.

Powered by an AC adapter, the set has nearly all the functions as usual cell phones like calling, messaging and taking photos, with the exception of vibrating alert, the report said.

Tan said he spent half a year making the phone and planned to apply for the Guinness World Records.
