First iPad 3rd Generation Unboxing Video Reveals 4G LTE Toggle



The new iPad is still sitting in FedEx warehouses around the country, but over in Vietnam, one iPad has already found a home, where it was promptly unboxed., a Vietnamese tech site was able to secure a 4G LTE version of the new iPad and shot the unboxing video below.

You might not understand much of the language, as it is in Vietnamese, but you can get another look at the new iPad, including a new setting to turn 4G LTE off.

The new iPad 3rd gen will be available in retail stores on Friday March 16th. The iPad 3rd generation has a new high-resolution Retina Display, 4G LTE and a vastly improved camera.

In the video, you can get a look at the new design, which doesn’t look much different from the iPad 2. The biggest news from this unboxing is that Apple has provided a 4G LTE data toggle in the settings.

Additional images of the new iPad 3rd Gen can be seen in the forums.

You can see the toggle below, which will allow you to turn off 4G LTE when you want to save battery life or if you live in an area with no 4G LTE coverage. When 4G LTE is turned off, Cellular Data is still on, so you should still connect over 3G.

In the U.S. and many countries the new iPad 3rd Generation models are sitting in warehouses waiting for shipment. While many readers and GottaBeMobile staff have received tracking numbers, it seems that FedEx is keeping the new iPads in warehouses in Pennsylvania, Nashville and Ontario, Canada.

    I have a serious question that is going to come off a little snarky: on the AT&T model, does the 4G toggle turn off 4G and 3G/3.5G? I ask because AT&T has started marketing their HSPA+ as 4G, when it isn’t. They only have real 4G LTE in a few areas in the country, so I can’t imagine many of us would want to toggle the 4G on very often at all. 

    This map was my reference point. Please let me know what you think

    I would also like to know the answer to the question posed by Mr. Warner above.  Anyone?
