Full Skype coming to webOS

As many of you know, the Verizon Palm Pre 2 has skype connectiving - allowing one to use Skype as an IM service, but exclusively for chatting -- and only when you're using Verizon's 3G network.  Well, with the HP Pre 3 and the Touchpad underway, it looks like there's going to be complete Skype connectivity with all webOS 2.2 and 3.0 devices, agnostic to what carrier it's on.
List of features in this full Skype client:

  •  full synergy integration (Skype will automatically work with your contacts in the device)
  • International calling and other VOIP services
  • Skype calls will act just like voice calls, unless you activate the camera when prompted (obviously this will require a Pre3 or Touchpad)
  • Being able to make audio or video calling directly from contacts cards and “Just Type” (nice)
  • A skype credit option exists in the app menu
  • Users can set whether International calls are sent through Skype and domestic calls through the Phone automatically, or have the choice with each call

  3. That's really awesome. I'd love to have a phone use Skype super well. :)

  4. everywhere i look i see new apps coming out, with the new smartphones and touch pads, and im still with my old siemens symbian with a vga camera

  5. man I need one of those smartphones real soon! I could use it in so many ways, it's amazing.

  6. With Skype, aren´t you able to speak for free? I don´t know how it´s going to be apllied here, but phone service companies won´t like it.
