First Unboxing Video of 3rd Generation Retina iPad

iPad 2012 1
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:

iPad 2012 25
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.

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

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 :o 15 inch display with 1920x1200 would be nice.
"Retina" on a MBP would not have to be double the resolution, clearly.

It's a fake, look this:

https://twitter.com/#!/FabioUrsi/status/179496907234746368

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.
