Watch as the Nokia Lumia 1020 parachutes into Dubai

Watch as the Nokia Lumia 1020 parachutes into Dubai
In less than three weeks, Nokia World will be taking place in Abu Dhabi. During the event we expect to see the Finnish based manufacturer introduce six new devices including the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet and the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet. In the United Arab Emirates, near Abu Dhabi, is Dubai where a Nokia Lumia 1020 descended into the country thanks to a skydiving team that carried the top-shelf Windows Phone 8 model in a bag.

During the skydiving scenes, a flag is unfurled promoting the phone as we see the city beckoning below. It's a great video and was filmed using a Nokia Lumia 1020. It certainly proves how tremendous video capture is on the camera-centric handset. You would expect to see a shaky video and instead, the OIS keeps the picture as steady as can be considering where it is being shot from.

Windows Phone and iOS were the only two platforms that showed growth in the latest comScore data of U.S. smartphone market share. And with the first Windows Phone phablet soon to be introduced with a 6 inch 1080 x 1920 screen and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 under the hood, the next few months could very well determine if Microsoft's mobile OS has enough in the tank to go after the iOS/Android duopoly.
