Microsoft posts email praising Lumia 900 from Apple fan

We already know that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is a big fan of Nokia's Lumia 900 and of the Windows Phone operating system in general. Now Microsoft has posted up a email on its Windows Phone site which it claims comes from a self-professed fan of Apple products. In short, this Apple user also loves the Lumia 900 and Windows Phone.

The letter, which Microsoft says comes from a person known only as "Scott G.", was written to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. "Scott G." admits in the email that it was written on a MacBook Pro and that he has been a fan of Apple's products for a number of years. However, he recently picked up a new Lumia 900, after apparently not liking an Android device, and says he plans to keep it.

One of the thing "Scott G." likes about the Lumia 900 is that it works well as a phone. He states:

I actually use my phone as a phone. That concept seems to get lost in many product reviews. One of my employees actually thanked me for getting rid of my iPhone as it was so much easier to hear me. I apologize for the tedium but it means a great deal to me and my business.

Other pluses including having the phone just work with his car's Sync system, a lack of "junk" software, and the Windows Phone Live Tiles feature. "Scott G." writes, "It’s a minor thing but the Metro tiles are pretty cool. I just like the look."

This is a rather interesting marketing scheme on Microsoft's part and we could see even more Apple convert emails to Windows Phone devices in the coming months.
