There's no chance of Nintendo-designed games for 3rd party platforms. The company's CEO, Satoru Iwata, put a knife in that possibility at a June 29 shareholder meeting (1up). He claimed that Nintendo games are inseparable from their hardware. Anyone who has ever used an emulator knows that this isn't true.

Nonetheless, Iwata feels sure that iOS would dilute the quality of their gaming experience. "Nintendo's software and hardware are the same thing. Other companies don't share Nintendo's values or traditions when it comes to creating devices. We are absolutely not thinking of doing that."
