HP and Palm are set to launch next version of the WebOS mobile operating system soon. The SDK for WebOS 2.0 is already available for some developers. Now a Chinese site has posted a series of photos showing the user interface for WebOS 2.0 beta.

Among other things, it looks like there will be support for QuickOffice for viewing and editing documents. There will also be new options for instant messaging including MySpace and Skype, and a number of features we had been expecting including a new “stacks” feature which lets you group together running programs making it easier to flip through cards while multitasking.

You can read more about some of the changes at PreCentral and find more images at Wibozi.
