Zune SDK Is XNA Game Studio?

Apparently this is the SDK for the Zune, and, presumably, the Zune HD.

A bunch of readers emailed me with the link to this “case study” from Microsoft a few weeks ago regarding an iPhone developer who ported their app to Windows Mobile 6.5 (well, to one specific Windows Mobile phone). But trust me, my iPhone Twitter client developer source was pitched on porting his app to the Zune, not to Windows Mobile.

The whole situation just goes to show how utterly convoluted Microsoft’s mobile development message is. They’re all over the map. And that’s not even mentioning their “Pink” project, which is apparently some sort of next-generation Sidekick.
