Personally, I'm waiting for a mobile (or 3DS) version of Wasteland 1. I keep bugging Brian about it on Twitter, but I think he just ignores me.

Now, seeing a mobile/portable console port of WL1 would be quite fun...

Very easily, seeing as how most phones these days are 64gb models, many of which also support MicroSD card storage.
I've been itching for a port of this game since playing the re-made versions of the Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, and Shadowrun android versions and remember the tons of fun I had with Wasteland 2. Why not be able to take it on the go with a tablet or smartphone??!

If I had to guess the number one issue is cost and can they get any return on a mobile version. Second is probably the difficulty in making the port.
If you look at the games most like Wasteland 2 on IOS and Android (like Baldur's Gate) one HUGE problem is that it's really REALLY hard to play these types of games on anything smaller than a decent sized tablet. I've TRIED playing Baldur's gate for IOS on the iphone and it's near impossible given the screen size. It used to be that tablets really would choke on big graphical games but not anymore. The current Ipad would have no problem doing Wasteland 2 Style games.
Personally I'd LOVE and REALLY want to play Wasteland 2/3 and Numenara on my Ipad as most of my free time is commuting but I've not heard any official stance on porting to Android and IOS tablets.
