Nokia and Microsoft took the wraps off Nokia's newest feature-packed, Windows Phone 8 smartphones. The company hopes to beat iPhone 5 to the punch. The company hopes to get a head start on the iPhone 5, which is expected to be introduced next week. But will Apple and Google kill any buzz created by Windows Phone 8 this week?

Here are a look at some of the highlights of the two new phones - the Nokia 820 and the Nokia 920.

The Nokia 920 sports optical image stabilization and a Carl Zeuss lens designed to capture blur-free photos in low light.
