Is there a way of developing for the iPhone in VS2010 on the PC?

No you need a mac, Apples decision
According to the Monotouch documentation page, this is not possible.  From this page:


"If you’d like to develop for iOS, you must have an Apple Macintosh computer running at least OSX Lion. Although Xamarin applications are based on the .NET BCL and are written in C#, Xamarin requires the iOS SDK and Xcode in order to compile. Additionally, the iOS Device Simulator is part of the iOS SDK, and therefore only available on Mac. In order to download the iOS SDK, you must be a member of Apple’s Developer Program. This program is freeequires an upgraded membership that costs $99 USD/year."
