Most usb devices can take firmware updates, so i imagine thats one access vector to re-purpose a device for malicious means.  Android phones to.  I dont see it getting wide-spread though..It's definitely made me think twice about buying cheap chinese usb devices.  Ever since I started working in information security, ive always wondered what comes on those cheap android media players n stuff.
