Palm webOS 2.0 Video Leaked [Update]
A webOS developer has apparently broken his non-disclosure agreement with Palm and posted a video of webOS 2.0 features from the closely-guarded software development kit. The video seems to confirm many of the leaked screenshots we’d seen of the unreleased operating system, such as QuickOffice integration, revamped search, and refined phone dialer. Specifically, it appears as though the QuickOffice application includes support for accessing documents from a number of cloud-based storage services, such as Google Docs, Dropbox, and Apple’s mobileme.
Apparently the user who uploaded the video to YouTube will be pulling it at 7:00 PM EST after several fellow developers complained that future access to the SDK may be further restricted if leaks continue. And the developers have reason to be worried: Palm suspended admission to its Early Access Program earlier this month after a small bit of code leaked out which hinted at a virtual keyboard being added to the platform. Unfortunately for the particular developer who made this video, his Gmail address is quite visible during a demonstration of QuickOffice cloud syncing, so we’d imagine that it won’t be too difficult for Palm/HP to unearth his true identity.
Update: As expected, the original video has been pulled, but we’ve uploaded our own copy which we ripped prior to its removal.
