Starting to develop Symbian UIQ programs

I was wondering if anyone could give me any pointers on where to begin if I wanted to start writing applications for the Symbian UIQ platform?

I have Visual Studio .NET 2003 with C#, C++ and VB.NET. I also have VB6. I am a developer by trade, but as yet have only really concentrated on Windows applications (VB, C# and VB.NET) and internet development (PHP, MySQL, etc).

What tools should I get (unless I already have everything I need) and how easy it would it be to start? Also, I don't particularly want to spend hundreds of pounds/dollars getting development software incase I'm no good at it. But I also don't see myself coding this in Notepad in C.

A couple of links that should help you getting started:

http://www.uiq.com/developer - intro to where to get tools and programming languages that can be used to develop applications for UIQ (C++, Java, VB6, VB.NET, OPL).

http://www.symbian.com/developer/techlib/papers/cpp_gettingstarted.asp - look a few entries down on the page for a "UIQ Application Development Tutorial" which covers the basics of C++ application development on UIQ.

http://www.appforge.com/products/enterprise/crossfire/index.html - using AppForge's Crossfire you should be able to continue working with VB6 and VB.NET if that is what you're most comfortable developing in.

Discussion forums on http://www.sonyericsson.com/developer and nntp://publicnews.symbiandevnet.com could also be helpful to know about once you get started.
