Or they don't think it's worth to keep making games for iPhone.

Probably the case. They don't generally care, IMO. And they will just sit back and collect checks from SMB and a bad cell phone port of Columns

I hope they are working on Sonic the Hedgehog

Apparently, Sega is working on porting some games over to the wireless field, but I didn't find any mention of the iPhone...

I remember watching an interview at E3 with the head of SEGA of America and he said that they were looking at their entire catalog of games and deciding which could be ported to the iPhone/Touch. In the same interview he said that the iPhone is as powerful as the Dreamcast and that he considers it a Dreamcast 2 of sorts...
So, I think they're working on something.
But only time will tell...
