innish phone-maker Nokia's share price fell 16 percent on Wednesday, after it debuted two new smartphones that use Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 operating system. The Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 feature advanced mapping and location services, boast high-tech cameras, and will run on high-speed fourth-generation networks. But investors were disappointed that Nokia didn't announce any new partnerships with major carriers like AT&T, and withheld the phones' prices and release dates. Nokia has fallen far behind Samsung and Apple in the smartphone market, and analysts say the Lumia may represent the struggling company's last chance to turn its fortunes around.
