Sticking with Windows Phone 8
The camera hardware and software are strong, but is it strong enough to stand out among the new premiere HTC One and Galaxy S4 Android phones?

Two years ago, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop bet the company's smartphone business not on Google's Android operating system, but Microsoft's Windows Phone software. While Nokia's Lumia line of Windows Phone devices has seen growth and saw record sales last quarter, it still hasn't been enough to rival the powerful competition from Apple and Samsung.

Still, Nokia believes sticking with Microsoft's operating system has been the right decision. "Windows Phone is absolutely the right strategy for us," Magid said.

"The differentiation -- getting our key imaging or Nokia Music and Maps -- all of that differentiation, we wouldn't be able to achieve that on Android platform."
