Look for an app called IM+ for Skype.
IM+ for Skype :: Products
It's what I'm using.

Check the SKYPE website please. You will see there is no client for the BB. Also, given that the 8800 only operates on EDGE, you really don't have the bandwidth for a decent quality VoIP call, IMHO.

I use a free program called iSkoot. If you run a search I'm sure you will find it.
