The Power BI for windows Store have tools to comments and annotations at now.Thanks
@JenUnderwood Do you mind sharing more details on the Power view workaround?
This is actually possible: I have found a work around but with limitations:

The big issue at the moment is the display of a text field: text is not displayed in full, there is no visual which allows wrapping as shown in the above screen shot.
You can use this Custom Visual. LongTextViewer.
Search for text on this page https://app.powerbi.com/visuals/
This can be done using app on your phone/Tab, Annotation is now available as a feature on Iphone PowerBI app. You
You can draw, put comments and share the screen to any user via email.
