OneNote Gets More Mobile in Office 2010

inking_hqThe news that OneNote will be included in all versions of Office 2010 was welcome, and as more information appears, it seems OneNote will be getting more “cloudy” too. David Rasmussen, OneNote product manager at Microsoft (s msft), has blogged details about the next version of the note-taking app, and it’s sounding pretty good for mobile users.

  • Sync to Cloud (Windows Live): Your notebooks sync and are available anywhere from any machine. Of course, this is in addition to all the existing ways you can sync notebooks — file shares, SharePoint, USB drives, etc.
  • OneNote Web App: You can access and edit your entire notebook from a browser. This is even supported on a machine that doesn’t have OneNote installed.
  • OneNote Mobile: A more complete OneNote version for Windows Mobile phones. Syncs whole notebooks. Syncs directly to the cloud. No need to tether your device. Richer editing support.

This is especially good news for Windows Mobile users, as the mobile version of OneNote has been very restrictive. This ability to cut the cord for syncing to OneNote Mobile is very good news, indeed. David’s details about the full OneNote to come are promising, and show a lot of improvements will be coming to a notebook near you.
