CAB files are typically Microsoft-based installers (aka Microsoft Cabinet files).  Since iPhone runs a BSD/FreeBSD-based OS, it won't work.  Refer to this article for additional info:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Internet_Email/Web_Browsers/Safari/Q_23858738.html

It is not possible, but you can extract information from the .CAB file that me be useful for you.

The binaries cant be executed on the iPhone architecture.
