One humorous segment during his presentation is a useful demonstration of where the company is going. Specifically, Nadella showed what he calls an 'iPhone Pro', which is just a regular iPhone that happens to have all of Microsoft's software loaded on it.

Nadella highlights Sway, Skype, and Outlook as just a few examples of they are creating the best products and services even on competing platforms. Nadella even quoted as saying that this is what Microsoft "aspires to do".
Satya is also very quick to point out that this iPhone is not his phone, possibly avoiding some rebukes from die-hard Windows Phone fans.
Although it may come off as boasting, in fact, consumers have responded. Outlook on the iPhone is one of the top rated and most downloaded email clients available regardless if the user is in Gmail or Outlook. Such an exhibition naturally sets up the comparison to Microsoft's own mobile OS, which is barely holding on to its current low market share.
