You can still use VS 2008 to develop mobile applications prior to v7. If you absolutely must use the older versions of the mobile SDK then you can install VS 2008 Express just for this development but as manishkungwani said, VS 2010 does not support this anymore.

The official information on the lack of support can be found here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/sa69he4t.aspx
