¬†Stephen Colbert can’t wait for the newest technology. On Monday night’s Colbert Report, the host begged and pleaded Steve Jobs to give him an iPad 2 ahead of Friday’s launch date.

“Oh my god. I need it. I need it! Give it to me,” Colbert said before pretending to lick the screen.

“Is that the new one or the old one? I can’t tell; it’s so beautiful. C’mon Apple, give me one through the TV. I know you have the technology.”

Like a true gadget junkie, he even broke down the specs of Jobs’ new device.

“It’s just so much better. I mean, it has dual core A5 CPU. That means it can not run Flash nine times faster.”

Colbert wants a new one because his old iPad is just too slow.

“Now the iPad 2 doesn’t come out until March 11. God knows how far away that is. I’m certainly not going to wait for this thing’s calendar program to boot up [holds up his original iPad].”
