Nokia takes on iPhone 5, Galaxy S3 in latest Lumia video

The company's video follows a roller coaster and compares the latest Lumia's video accuracy with that of the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3.Nokia's Lumia 928

Nokia is taking the fight to Samsung and Apple in a new video posted to YouTube.
Dubbed "The Hurricane," the video follows a roller coaster going around its track as it's being filmed by Nokia's new Lumia handset, the Lumia 928, as well as the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3. Thanks to the handset's 8.7-megapixel PureView camera, Nokia argues, visuals will be much better when recording video.
After showing the roller coaster moving around the track, Nokia's video compares frames to those captured by the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3. It's clear, based on those frames, that the PureView takes the top spot, but whether it was truly a fair comparison is unknown.Photos leaked earlier this week of the Lumia 928. Nokia hasn't officially revealed all the details on the device, and has instead decided to slowly offer up some details.
Interestingly, Nokia compares the Lumia 928's camera to that of the Galaxy S3 and not Samsung's latest handset, the Galaxy S4. It might be interesting to see how those two devices match up in a similar ride on the roller coaster.
Here's the video Nokia has posted to its site:

Roku's speedy streamer is the best box yetThe good:The Roku 3's excellent new interface and faster processor makes it feel quicker and more responsive than any other streaming box. More than 750 channels are supported, including Netflix, Amazon Instant, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, Pandora, MLB.TV, Amazon Cloud Player, and Vudu. It also has cross-platform search that scours several major TV and movie services to find content. And Roku's nifty new remote has a built-in headphone jack that lets you listen without disturbing others. The bad:There's still no official YouTube channel. Some services have an outdated interface on Roku compared to other streamers. The Apple TV still works better within the Apple ecosystem. And the Roku 3 isn't a great option if you're mostly looking to stream your personal digital media collection. The bottom line:The Roku 3 is the best streaming-video box yet, with tons of content sources, lightning-fast performance, and an innovative remote wit…

Power-packed plasma shines brighter

The good:The Samsung PNF8500 series exhibits outstanding picture quality with a class-leading bright-room image, exceedingly deep black levels, very good shadow detail, highly accurate colors and superb off-angle and uniformity characteristics; mind-boggling feature list with touch-pad remote, IR blaster with cable box control, four pairs of 3D glasses, motion and voice command, and the industry's most capable Smart TV platform; unique styling with full-width ribbon stand and slim-bezel metallic finish. The bad:Extremely expensive; correct film cadence requires sacrificing some black level; remote lacks numerous direct commands; imperfect cable box control; consumes more power than LCD TVs. The bottom line:Samsung's best-performing TV ever, the PNF8500 series pushes the plasma picture quality envelope, especially in bright rooms.Amid the hubbub aboutPanasonic's financial troubleand questions about how it will affectthe future of plasma TV, it's easy to forget about Samsu…
