    You might want to start with the training kit. What is your native language? There seems to be something lost in translation.

    The experts say... Your late. You might as well wait and begin anew with Windows Phone 8. Sometime this summer the tools to begin development for this new platform should /might become available. Your XNA skills will become obsolete with the new platform.

    You can continue using XNA and Silverlight and target Windows Phone 7.5 / 7.8, (which will also work on 8 ) but you won't be able to use any of the new features in Windows Phone 8.

    @Proton2: Agreed. Windows Phone 8 devices should be showing up by the end of the year, and while some of your Silverlight skills will transfer over, you'd best wait for the new stuff before diving in.

    In the meantime, try doing some Metro apps in Windows 8 using the WinRT API. It will get you used to using XAML and the phone 8 API should be similar.
