No, Windows XP applications are totally separate from Windows Mobile apps. However, Microsoft's Visual Studio IDE does include development capabilities for both XP and Mobile.

I think you're talking about the so called "lifestyle" PC that Microsoft is supposed to come out with. Its smallish in size, and supposedly run the full Windows XP and its applications. Windows Mobile is a different operating system, and like what Jacob says, if you have Visual Studio, you can create applications to run on the Windows Mobile environment.
