Can Windows Phone 7 sync with OneNote via USB?

I use OneNote to organize EVERYTHING in my life, so now that I’m planning to buy an smartphone, I’m thinking of Windows Phone first (as i expect it to have a better OneNote app than iPhone and Android).

How is the syncing via USB of OneNote, and can WP7 display all the tags of ON?

You know, the “Search/Show tags” feature which displays a list of the tags on the right… can WP7 do something like this?

    Hello Antonio,

    Syncing between OneNote on your PC and OneNote on your Windows Phone takes place via the Internet, specifically via your Windows Live SkyDrive; there is no USB-based sync available.

    For more info check this site and read How the sync works

        Syncing OneNote to IPhone is not possible through USB syncing and you can only sync through skydrive only.
        There is a Microsoft Onenote app for Iphone
        http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/onenote/id410395246?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D4

        Syncing onenote to android is not possible through USB syncing and you can only sync through skydrive only.
        This is the Download site for android software
        https://market.android.com/details?id=com.microsoft.office.onenote
        This is the Blog that explains the above
        http://blogs.office.com/b/microsoft-onenote/archive/2012/02/07/onenote-mobile-for-android-is-now-available-worldwide.aspx

        There is an alternative to onenote that you can use on android and IPhone. It is called MobileNoter.Check it out. and One note tags are supported and also supports online syncing from skydrive and supports many features. This is a paid software so you have to pay for it..

          You are most Welcome, ...one more thing I believe that if one has a mac OS in your main computer then get an Iphone and If ones main computer is running on windows OS or any other OS except mac then get an android...
          :)[That's my opinion]
          Good Day..
