Skype for iPad coming soon

Skype representative, Rick Osterloh, has confirmed to TUAW that Skype for iPad will be coming soon. A video of the new iPad app, was leaked onto the internet this morning, on Skype's official YouTube channel but was quickly made private. Luckily, some people managed to successfully record a screen capture of the video before it was taken down.

The app will let users to chat and make calls via wifi and 3G, including video calls on the iPad 2. Osterloh said that, while they were fine with the iPhone app on the original iPad, the new cameras on the iPad 2 are what made a dedicated iPad app "super compelling".

No release date has been announced yet, but we can speculate that it will be soon.

See the leaked video (sorry, no audio) after the break. What do you think of the Skype for iPad app? Do you need Skype on your iPad?

iOS 5 beta 2 gallery

For some strange reason, our tip box is now overflowing with 960x640 screenshots (what, no iPad love?) showing a few changes from today's iOS 5 beta 2 release. Among the more interesting ones:

  • Welcome screen now has an info button to give you your UDID number, should you have failed to record it previously (Thanks Apple!)
  • The iCloud icon in settings is no longer purple. Long live brush metal cone fill!
  • Lock screen notifications get a new, single pop up. You can pull down the full list if you like, and if you get multiple notifications, they start to stack again like they did previously.
  • Wi-Fi sync in now working, but you need to be connected to a power source.
  • iCloud has bumped Exchange from the top spot in mail account setup, while MobileMe has been condemned to the bottom.

We'll update as we receive more. Screenshots after the break!
