I'm designing a web site with Joomla! 2.5 and in phase 1 I have to design a template to support only the pc (yes! only the pc, because actually it was agreed to add mobile support feature in phase 2 and the contract of that phase will be signed after the delivery of phase 1 and if my design is so that the mobile support is done in phase 1 (perhaps by using one of the modern template frameworks such as T3 or Warp) I will not be payed for this feature afterwards and I'll lose some money!).
Is it a way (technique, trick, ...) to firstly design the site with no mobile support in advance and then adapt the design to support mobile browsers? (or at least to design with mobile support and disable it until phase 2 ?)

[mod note - consolidated from other threads]
Which of the following Joomla! Template Frameworks are base on (or support) Bootstrap: Warp, T3, Gantry, Helix, Gavern?

Is it possible to design a Joomla! 2.5 site primarily without using HTML5 Boilerplate and then take the site into H5BP Framework some time in the future (after the launching) with neither loss of data nor need to redesign the currently using template?

First off, this is kind of crazy, but I was recently asked to do the same.

My advice: build your initial desktop site with mobile in mind. Don't spend time/money on mobile styling, but think about how you are going to eventually achieve it.

Bootstrap and Zurb are excellent, but not magic. However, if you build your initial site on theme based on Bootstrap, you'll have a leg up.

Keep in mind, that you can also include Bootstrap function in any theme simply by adding in the bootstrap CSS and JS to the theme template.

The advantage of a theme built to be Bootstrap friendly is it should include the Bootstrap classes in relevant elements.
