It seems Apple's competitors can't get enough of criticizing iDevices in their various TV ads. The latest in a long line of advertisements to "take a bite out of Apple" in such a way is Nokia, who argues that its Nokia Lumia 1020 will easily leave iDevice owners behind when it comes to low-light photography. As a reminder, Nokia unveiled its Lumia 1020 to a surprised audience some months back. The handset itself features a PureView-powered 41 megapixel camera with an F/2.2 lens, and as such, Nokia's ad focuses on the fact that in the camera department, the Lumia can most likely outdo the iPhone (or iPad) with ease. The ad, in all fairness, is ridiculous. Below, we've embedded the video so you can take a look. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vR4LeL0yzE&feature=player_embedded

Instead of mindlessly increasing megapixels (and thereby the ultimate file size of images captured), Apple is instead said to be planning on altering the aperture of the smartphone's camera in a bid to improve low-light shooting. We'll keep you updated with further information as we receive it.
