NEW GIZMOS: Nokia is expanding its lineup of Windows phones and introducing its first tablet computer.

FANCY FLASH: The new gadgets have the powerful camera technology found in Nokia's flagship Lumia 1020 smartphone. The struggling cellphone maker is turning to the camera to differentiate its phones from rivals.

BACK STORY: Nokia's cellphone business has unraveled since Apple revolutionized the way people use handsets with the 2007 introduction of the iPhone. Microsoft, which is buying Nokia's phone business and patent rights for $7.4 billion, is struggling amid declines in sales of traditional personal computers in favor of smartphones and tablets.
