Dubai, located in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), is not too far from Abu Dhabi where Nokia will be in a few weeks for Nokia World 2013. With sprawling skyscrapers, the mega city claims 2,106,177 residents and it is home to the Burj Khalifa aka the tallest manmade structure in the world at 829.8 m (2,722 ft).
The video, which was just posted by Nokia, was shot entirely on the Lumia 1020 and features some brave folks jumping out of a plane. Strapped to one of the parachutists is a bag emblazoned with “Nothing else comes close” and we even see a flag unfurled with the same logo, while the gorgeous Dubai is seen below. In the meantime, some cool folks on their motorcycles meet up with the jumpers to transfer the Lumia 1020 package.
The video wraps up with the Lumia 1020 being handed off to a gentleman, noting that yellow Windows Phone has arrived. At the very end of the ad we see a mysterious man roll down his car window with a teased “To be continued…”.
The video is certainly one of the most exciting ones we’ve come across and Dubai is a fairly major metropolis to get the 41 MP camera phone. We’ll hopefully stop by the super city in a couple weeks when we take a break from Abu Dhabi. Can’t promise we’ll parachute in though!
