You can get python installed if your iphone is jailbroken via the Cydia installer (apt-get Debian style but for the iPhone). I think you're imagining a slippy map via the browser though right? The problem is that when you drag on the browser, it scrolls the view (rather than activating a mouse-down event, which would scroll the map).

Has the iphone python? Check pymap in the svn repository, it is basically a slippy map that will cache all the downloaded tiles. It should be easy to add a downloader for a certain region for predownloading.
But it has the same functionality/usability as a stock slippy map.
