CNET sits down with Stephen Elop to get the low down on why his new Lumia phones are worth a look.

I -- channel cnet.com here with Nokia CS unit up Stephen. Because of you but seeing -- of a show us we do. You know eighteen months ago we started on -- -- of changing Smartphone strategy with our partnership with Microsoft. You've seen some big steps along the way -- -- another and other things that. We're introducing what we believe the world's most innovative Smart phone the Nokia Lumia 920. And it's mid -- partner Nokia Lumia eight -- So very excited about those Carlo -- about why they're the world's most -- -- -- phone. So a few things are really really shine on these devices out first of all there -- that's devices to capture photos and images. We have built into the Lumia nine -- money. Floating -- technology. That allows you. To take pictures even -- your hand me appreciate. Why -- why is that important. Because in very low light conditions you can take beautiful images and we looked at some of -- -- before we -- -- an amazing low light capabilities. And also take -- pictured here and is moving here on bicycle which happens to laws. Beautiful pictures. -- to support those pictures obviously beautiful WX GA display technology. And even allows you to scroll everything with. Fingernail with your glow for whatever the case. It shows -- beautifully and bright sunlight conditions so that's that's of one principal focus of -- were describing. But with these devices were formally introducing the -- -- -- capability which is augmented reality. So here I can hold this up and look at the scene around me. But overlaid on the buildings around us what I'm seeing art headaches that highlight what those different buildings are -- -- my friends might he or things like. I'm able to click on those those -- get navigation directions so it's very intuitive way. To work with the world. And then a -- point of course is that these are Windows Phone devices Windows Phone eight. More sharing with windows on PCs tablets with Xbox. So all around a great consumer experience there really trust them -- you -- Thought you tell windows donate. You know it's critically it's gotten a lot of -- Commercially hasn't seen as much success and what. What's the use of external and getting people -- witness on I think a lot of it. Is or consumers to understand and appreciate. The new style of the user experience and we're very proud that were different -- -- everything else is is being presented so. In the stores on the web as people look at what we're seeing is as they become familiar with this user experience and engage with it than it all -- while it. But one of the things that we believe helps a lot is of course in the fourth quarter as well. Windows eight which shares a common user experience with the Lumia devices. Will be introduced so many many people see it on PCs tablets and so for. And as that new point of view gets established I think that will help us a great deal as it relates the -- -- Now out of say that the -- -- and there are a number of other high profile phones coming out out the iPhone being one of them how do you hope to kind of captured customers' attention when obviously Apple's and -- hard -- -- ship spotlight. I think the most important thing is to have different point of view with some incredible -- -- Whether it's that -- experience that we all you'll come across. Whether -- -- don't take the best pictures to navigate all of those capabilities plus the beautiful design. I think people are looking for something different so this is Lumia and we think it's time -- access -- it. This and rock check cnet.com. Yeah.
