The makers of ‘digital pen’ devices, Pegasus, are happy with the integration of their products with Microsoft OneNote.

Their mobile device is especially interesting. It’s a small box with a combination ink/digital pen. You write or draw on normal paper with the device at the top of the page. As you write the device records your writing with a small display to confirm that it’s working.

When you connect the unit to your computer the handwriting / drawings can be copied to your main computer, and that can now include appearing automatically in OneNote. Though it’s not stated, we’re assuming that OneNote will do its nifty background OCR trick to make the written notes searchable. The process is one-way from the device to OneNote, which makes sense since there’s no ability to edit on the Mobile NoteTaker.

Savvy readers will notice that this is similar to the Pocket PC notes integration with OneNote SP1, except that with Mobile NoteTaker you have a larger writing space and get an ink on paper copy as well.

Still, Mobile NoteTaker and its desktop version PC Notes Taker are a welcome move and for many a better option than the still developing Tablet PC.
