As promised, Skype has launched a mobile app for webOS 2. Right now it’s exclusively available in the US for the Palm Pre 2 smartphone from Verizon Wireless.

I got a chance to check out a pre-release version of the app a few months ago. The app will let users make free Skype to Skype calls, but domestic phone calls will be routed through Verizon’s network, which means you’ll have to use your Verizon minutes to make domestic phone calls.

The good news is that you can make international calls at SkypeOut rates, which tend to be much better than the rates offered by Verizon or other US wireless carriers.

You can download Skype for the Palm Pre 2 by visiting skype.com/m.
