The first unboxing video for the new iPad is making the rounds. The video comes from the Vietnamese site Tinhte.vn, which also provided benchmark information for Apple's latest tablet. Launching worldwide on Friday, March 16, the new iPad appears to include 1GB of RAM, with the tablet’s new A5X processor clocked at 1GHz. In addition, the overall Geekbench score remains the same as that of the iPad 2; 750. Finally, the video clearly shows that the new iPad includes a new toggle for LTE in the Cellular Data section of Settings. (Still, why does the video include an ad for the Kindle Fire at the end?) Take a look: As a reminder, the new iPad arrives on Friday in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Switzerland, UK and the US Virgin Islands. The third generation tablet will be available by the end of March in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Macau, Mexico, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden. Getting even more excited about the arrival of the new iPad?
