This page explains it clearly. Mobile SDK is just one of the three components of the Tocuh platform. Specifically, it's the basically the mobile container while the two other components are Force.com for Touch and Identity. To summarize, you can still build mobile force.com apps just using the Mobile SDK without using the 2 other components (unless you specifically want to use them)

I'm hoping this helps.

Thanks for the reply, but does this mean that the concept of the sales force mobile and the sales force sdk is totally different,
The sales force mobile is an application that can show the sales force users their data on the mobile and the sdk is used for the development in the native and hybrid apps and is different for android development as well as for ios development. And only if we want the touch platform usage we will develop pages using the touch controls.
This is my understanding , can you correct me if i am wrong.
