Google today announced Keep, a new service that can be used by Android device owners to easily store notes, voice memos, and other data in the cloud and sync it across their smartphones, tablets, and PCs. Keep notes can be color coded, can be archived with a swipe, and can be turned into a checklist for managing tasks. The app includes a home screen widget for quick note-taking. Notes are stored in a separate area of the user's Google Drive account online. Google Keep is available beginning today to Android devices running Ice Cream Sandwich and up.

Article neglects to mention Android 4.0+ is required. . .

I was gonna give this a try,...went to the market and apparently my device isn't compatible!
Gotta have 4.0+, my Droid Charge has 2.3.6

I'm not upgrading until the Snapdragon 800 reaches smartphones, so I'll just sit tight and wait,...guess I'll have to try this Keep app later in the year.
Uh, did you read the last sentence? It specifically says Ice Cream Sandwich and up.

What took them so long?

I've been looking for a note taking app that is simple to use, cloud abilities, and baked into the OS. Well, the first two seem to have been accomplished. Can it now be part of the standard set of Google apps?
