N8 Skype and MS Outlook

I'm looking to buy a Nokia N8 (Belle) moving on from my old E52.

I want to confirm that Skype does run on Nokia N8 and also that local sync to MS Outlook calendar and contacts is possible using Nokia PC suite.

There seems to be contradictory information out there. Anyone with an Nokia N8 (version Belle) able to confirm?

Thanks

Skype runs fine. Note that Skype on Symbian has audio calls (skype-to-skype, skype-to-phone with credits) etc but does not have video calls.

Not sure about your outlook question.

Talking They do work

My N8 is running Belle.
Skype v2.01(23)v6.93(0) runs with no problem. I do sync with my PC using both Nokia PC Suite v7.1.180.64 and Nokia (Ovi) Suite v3.4.49.
I normally prefer Nokia PC Suite as it gives control on how often to sync and also allows one way syncing. I mostly use Nokia Suite for checking software upgrades, map management and to download apps from the Nokia Store while browsing on the PC.
I also use Skype v6.93(0) for Three Network, developed by Skoot.
