ZDNet: Microsoft Sales & Marketing group puts the kibosh on buying Apple products with company money

Mary Jo Foley at ZDNet has an interesting item about Microsoft’s Sales, Marketing, Services, IT, & Operations Group (SMSG) possibly putting the kibosh on having the company pay for Macs and iPads.

This is based on an alleged internal e-mail that Foley received from one of her contacts.

Foley says the company has neither confirmed nor denied that the email was real. I have a request in to Microsoft for confirmation.

Foley notes that “it has been Microsoft’s policy for years — dating back to Windows Mobile in 2009 — that iPhones, Blackberrys and Palm devices (and their respective data plans) cannot be expensed.” And she notes the company does not prohibit its employees from using other companies’ products.

Most of the commenters to Foley’s item are supportive of this policy, calling it a smart move on Microsoft’s part.
