The new Lumia phones use Microsoft's latest Windows Phone software, boast a high-tech camera and other innovative features.

Helsinki-based Bloomberg News economy reporter Kati Pohjanpalo tells anchor Lisa Mullins this is no surprise in Finland.

The phones, she says, were just not boldly innovative enough in comparison with iPhones and Android devices.
