Would the Nokia Lumina 900 Windows Phone make a good first smartphone for a tech challenged individual?

I have a staff member that hasn't really left the tech world of the 90s behind. I have been goofing around with my new Samsung Galaxy S II in her presence for a few weeks now, and she has come around to the idea that a smartphone would be a nice replacement for her flip phone. I wholeheartedly agree. She asked me for recommendations, and after finding out that she is on AT&T, my first thought was to suggest an iPhone 4S. It is the device I automatically think of when it comes to out-of-the-box use. But I started thinking about it, and there were a few things that made me second guess myself. She doesn't have any other Apple products or use iTunes, so there wouldn't be the normal benefit of easy integration with existing machines/services. We use Windows here (outside of the IT dept anyway), and will migrate to Windows 8 at some point, so I started thinking that she might be a good match for a Lumina 900. The hardware is solid, the OS looks interesting and pretty intuitive, and I think that she would get a lot for the money, but like almost everyone else, I'm not a Windows Phone user. How suited is the Nokia Lumina 900 for an introduction to the smartphone world?
