I have a friend who is wondering, can the iPhone harbour PC viruses or a keylogger?

For example, when you plug in the iPhone, you are able to access the internal memory where images are stored on it straight via "My Computer". Is it possible that a keylogger virus could be stored on that internal memory, and then when you plug it into another computer, it is transfered onto that computer?

So to be specific, the question is not about whether or not the virus would affect the iPhone (although if it would, please let me know) but whether or not the iPhone could carry and transfer it to other PC's.

Thanks alot for your answers.
