T3, the gadget magazine, held its annual awards bash in London last night, where it lavished praise on the good and the great of the technological award.

Run by the same publishers of TechRadar, and hosted by radio personality Johnny Vaughan, the T3 Awards were bigger than ever this year, with a whole host of celebrities and technorati turning up to the event to see which gadgets won on the night.

One person who couldn't be there to accept the award but did so through a pre-recorded acceptance speech was Stephen Fry – who T3 voted Tech Personality of the Year.

Impressed with the accolade he even Twittered he had won once the announcement was made.
