webOS 2.0 screenshots appear: QuickOffice, VPN support, Skype?

Now that the Palm NDA has been violated, it looks as though details surrounding webOS 2.0 are going to start leaking at a rapid pace. The folks at Chinese site Wibozi.com certainly think it's fair game at this point, and today they've shared a veritable treasure trove of images captured from the upcoming release.

A number of interesting changes are pictured, such as:
  • VPN support
  • broader account support (Exchange, Google, LinkedIn, etc.)
  • more chat networks
  • Skype support -- though possibly only for IM, not voice
  • user-configurable autocorrect settings
  • ability to add and remove pages to the launcher
  • the new stacks and Just Type features
Overall, the webOS 2.0 update looks to be a fairly major improvement. Hopefully some big-names developers will follow HP's lead and get behind it with some solid, new PDK apps.

All that's left to do now is wait for some webOS Doctor .JAR files to be leaked so us enthusiasts can get our hands on the beta bits... Coming soon? [via PreCentral]
