There was also the recent case of iPods infected with Windows virii by the manufacturer.
If you can compromise the point of origin for consumer devices, then you do have a potentially very large distribution network.
Of course, it would still probably be far more profitable to focus on Windows exploits than Linux exploits, given the relative size of the target audience, but the same principle applies. I agree that not being able to safely mount media is a serious problem.
