Yes redson is right, if you are .Net specialists, I would definately suggest targeting the Windows Mobile 5/6 Platforms, as there is a lot of support out there and great functionality.

For this you will need

VS 2005
Windows Mobile 5/6 SDK
.Net Compact Framework
SQL Server CE 3.0 (For databae driven apps)

Most of these can be downloaded from MSDN downloads.

Yes, however if you are interested in targeting more platforms it seems that J2ME has better market penetration then .NET considering most regular phones and smart phones support it.

And for that get Netbeans 6 from sun.com.
After installing it, open the addons/plugins pnel and select everything that is linked to mobile including sun's wireless toolkit.
Creating .jar files that run on Java enabled phones should then be a breeze.
