Microsoft announced today that it has delivered the first version of OneNote for Android handsets today. This release follows similar OneNote mobile versions for Windows Phone, iPhone and iPad.

"If you're already using OneNote on your PC, the mobile versions of OneNote let you take your notes with you, from simple lists and to-dos to full-fledged notebooks which you can share with your friends, family, co-workers, or classmates," Microsoft's Michael C. Oldenburg  writes in the official OneNote Blog." With a free Microsoft SkyDrive account, you can easily sync all of your OneNote notebooks so they're always up-to-date and accessible from your mobile device, your Web browser, or your computer."
