PPC SDK is for touch-screen devices (not necessary phones) while Smartphone one is for non-touch phones. The differences are subtle. Apart from slightly different core API, they have different emulator, may include  different tools (like Cellular emulator) etc.

Each platform targets a different set of Phones. The code base will run on both platforms but its wise to test the code base on both platforms to ensure the compatibility.

Smartphone has few phone specific GUI controls.
There are other differences on low-level also. In 2003 versions Smartphone has privileged mode and a lot of API was in this mode - SMS sending/receiving, etc.
