Not really. The problem with the iPhone is that you cannot run any  
self-written applications on it (in an Apple-sanctioned way) without  
subscribing to Apple's $99/year developer program.

On the plus side, this:

is also true for the iPhone, but it's not a problem at all there,  
because the x86 simulator is basically Mac OS X/i386 with some extra  
frameworks (I didn't have to change anything at all to the i386  
compiler for it to generate working applications for the iPhone
