We've already taken a look at how the new Blackberry Z10 measures up against the Nokia Lumia 920 and now we'll take a gander at the camera. It's been well proven that the Lumia 920 performs rather well in low light situations. The optically stabilized, back-lit sensor pairs up nicely with the f2.0 lens to light up some of the dimmest situations.

The Blackberry Z10 is fitted with an 8MP, back-lit sensor and a f2.2 lens. While it lacks optical stabilization, on paper, the Z10's camera reads as if it can handle low light situations fairly well. Gizmodo had the opportunity to test things out and it appears the Z10 was not only smoked by a Windows Phone but also an iPhone and Android device as well.

Today we’ve got one more for the Lumia crowd, a cover from Brando for your 920 that packs a 2200 mAh battery in the back.

We’ve seen some fairly awesome ‘fan made’ Windows Phone commercials in the past. The most famous was Brandon Foy, whose college project ended up landing him a job at Microsoft.

Now we have another school assignment that has caught the attention of a few, including this site. Made by Phong Luong and friends for their school project (follow the progress on their site), the ad works for us due to the solid music, retro-artsy look and of course focusing on the main features of the phone (PureView camera, wireless charging, unibody design). Plus it just pops out at us.

Nokia is poised to launch the Lumia 920 in Jordan. It's the first Windows Phone to be released in the region due to lack of language support in the operating system. With the advent of Windows Phone 8's greater language support, including RTL abilities, Nokia (and other OEM partners) can now push hardware in the market. Nokia's reportedly a popular brand in Jordan, so how well is it expected to perform?

Windows Phone developer, Ronny Gydar, is normally busy working on his various Windows Phone apps that includes Trine's Hangman and People Search. But this past weekend he and a few friends spent some time on the slopes.

Skiing on Sled Dogs snow skates, Ronny captured the footage using his Nokia Lumia 920 and not only is it impressive watching these guys fly downhill on such small skates but the 920's performance isn't too shabby either.  Ronny said the biggest challenge may have been simply holding on to his Lumia 920 while skiing.  He's using a silicone skin case that required both hands to maintain a firm grip on the Windows Phone.  He's since vowed to find a more rugged case so he concentrate more on the skiing and get away with holding his Lumia 920 with one hand.

While the audio isn't the best (racing down hill does generate a little wind noise), you can barely notice any bounce with the Lumia 920's image stabilization. I'm guessing the flashes of light in the footage is snow reflecting off the Lumia 920's light as it impacts the lens.

All in all, the footage is yet more testimony to the benefit image stabilization gives the Lumia 920.

Thanks, Ronny, for sharing the video!
