For all of you who’ve been asking (and patiently waiting) for a version of OneNote for your Android phones, we have great news: OneNote Mobile for Android is now available! Download it from the Android Market app store today!
Mobile versions of OneNote are currently available on Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad, and now Android. No matter which platform you prefer, OneNote Mobile lets you easily capture and access all of your notes and ideas on the go.
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. 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. (Learn how to move your notebooks to the cloud.)

Free vs. unlimited use
OneNote Mobile for Android is free to download and use for up to 500 notes. When you’ve reached this limit, you can upgrade the app for a one-time fee of US $4.99 for unlimited use.
If you choose not to upgrade to the unlimited version, you can still view, sync, and delete any of your existing notes even after you’ve reached the 500 notes limit. However, you will no longer be able to edit your notes or create new ones on your Android phone.
For unlimited use pricing outside of the United States, please visit the Android Market in your region (see below for a complete list of supported countries and markets).
