There is no Tails for mobile phones. There are people looking into porting Tails to the arm platform, but these efforts are still in a pretty early phase.

Actually they better fix their non-mobile OS first : it's buggy like hell. Android Open Source can be modified to use Tor without much troubles, I think - it has a very good structure and API+conventions to add your own components right to the source and build exactly what you want. IPTables are built-in, so there should be no single problem to "torify" the entire system
