Hello iPhone experts,

I am VERY NEW to iPhone (have not developed anything on it) and I have been assigned to create an application that will intercept incoming telephone calls to iPhone and retrieve the telephone number for further processing, i.e. storing it within a local database running on the iPhone.

What programming language and API would allow me to write an iPhone application that would retrieve the phone number of an incoming call to the iPhone, process it (look it up in an online people directory), present a dialog to the user showing the name of the caller (if found), so as the user can decide whether to answer the call or not ?

Where can I get an SDK / IDE to write the software ?
Can you suggest any good sources for iPhone development ?

I have only been given a new Mac Mini for this project and 'nothing else'... :) I mean, there is no SDK / IDE loaded on the machine...

My current programming experience is with C#.NET (programming for >6 years now), althouth, I know I cannot use my C#.NET skills to write this application.

Thanks for your help (an iPhone newbie...)
