XDA member Talys wrote a nice review of One Note for Windows Phone 7 devices. The original poster discovered a lot of useful stuff like you can have tabbed OneNote Notebook on WP7, the possibility to have multiple notebooks and that it can be perfectly synced to the free Web version and to the Office 2010 version of your PC. You can even color your tabs. The member described a detailed method to get all these great features working in only four steps. Perhaps, these tips are already know by some WP7 users but for those who are not aware, it will be a nice surprise. Also, if you tap and hold a notebook section (tab), you have the ability to set that as the default for new pages.

OneNote / Live – Awesome feature, barely documented?
I’ve been using WP7 for about 5-6 days now. It’s been an interesting combination of “How can that be missing?” and “Holy crap, that’s cool!”. By far, I think the most awesome and unique features are the cloud-related ones, like auto upload photos to SkyDrive and Zune.
And then I discovered the uber-coolness of OneNote.
As with many things on WP7, the documentation is scarce, burried, or both. But, did you know that you can have tabbed OneNote Notebook on WP7? Did you know that it can be perfectly synced to the free Web version and to the Office 2010 version of your PC?
Did you know that you can even have multiple notebooks?
If not, here’s how:
1. Go to office.live.com on your PC, and make sure that you have a OneNote file created. If you’ve used OneNote from your PC, there should be a Personal (Web) file. If not, create it.
