Correct. AFAIK, the only official way to develop for the iPhone/iTouch if to do it on a Mac.

If you can find a objective-c compiler for Windows. The SDK is just a simplified tool for objective-c.

If you don't use the SDK you may run into problems as there are no testing tools to aid you on your conquest.

Would this not be excluding all the iPhone and Cocoa Touch libraries? You're going to need more than just the compiler.

This would be against the Apple EULA as that wouldn't be . Read section 2.A. of the OS X EULA here.
