No, you can install the java version and it does work - I have tried it. If you go to the skype site you will be able to download the app to your phone.

I branded my K850i to 3 this weekend and it works great without the need to top up, though i will be topping up, I just wanted to see how it all worked out.

Think I may pick up a spare SE phone to use skype as 3 branding is disgusting, lol
