    While the official launch of the 3rd Generation iPad isn't until March 16th, Vietnamese site Tinhte.vn has managed to get their hands on one of the new iPads and shot an unboxing video.

    The video, of course, is in Vietnamese, but you can follow along pretty easily.

    There are no new revelations, but you can see the unboxing and also the LTE toggle in the settings:

    Additional photos can be seen in the Tinhte forum thread.

    The 3rd Generation iPad launches officially on March 16th. Many readers have already received shipping notices for their pre-orders. While some may slip through the cracks and be delivered early, Apple typically requests shipments to be delayed until launch day.

    The term 'retina display' really needs to go.

    JUST A HEADS UP..

    you will notice the box is the same as the IPAD2 box... except the screen image is blue..

    keep that in mind..... for if your at a store and the ipad's are behind glass, you will at least know its an ipad 3...

    also, if your buying off of someone, make sure to check the box for the blue screen on the ipad... and I would also open it up and fire it up to make sure its a retina screen....

    I can see some scams happening soon...

    Apple should of put something different on the box to differentiate from the ipad 2 box

    It's not. The serial number they clearly show in the video is from a black iPad 2 that they are using to show the difference in the model numbers.

    The serial number of the new iPad is blurred in the video.

    This iPad must have "fallen off the back of the truck" so to speak...

    Not a fake

    It's not a fake. The serial number of the new iPad is DLXH24J7DVGK (you can just barely make it out when the video shows the back of the iPad box). The other serial number is the serial number of the old iPad 2 (you can easily tell because when that serial # is shown, the iPad bezel is black - whereas the iPad 3 being unpacked has a white bezel).

    I hope they wont put "retina" displays on the MacbookPro line because it is just nonsense. You cannot see the pixels on 15" @ 1440x960 either. Unless you put your nose to the screen :eek: 15 inch display with 1920x1200 would be nice.

    They should put effort to maximizing the battery life on those laptops. There is plenty of heat, power and fan noise with todays laptops already. They have gone in the wrong direction if CPU temperatures hit over 100C and they call it normal behaviour...

    Well normal or not, definitely anti-green if nothing else. 100C temps for electric components means quick death.

    Well there is two blokes that will never be seen again... ;)

    Interesting how many leaks there have been of the iPad this time around, with Jobs gone, maybe the Apple Secret service has been cut back.

    "Retina" on a MBP would not have to be double the resolution, clearly.
