Stephen Fry's iPad lust confession

Stephen Fry has confessed his adoration for the iPad after attending the launch in San Francisco, saying "it is a game-changer... things will alter".

The self-proclaimed Apple fan sent Newsnight this exclusive message in which he said he was slow to warm to the device at first, but saw it as "a real challenge to the e-books... it's a much more beautiful experience than the ordinary ebook reader.

"It's really stunning indeed, the display is incredible, the speed of the thing is absolutely amazing".
