I find that having a mobile-responsive site is an excellent middle-of-the-road approach that just keeps getting better every day with the continuing evolution of cell phones.
Screens are bigger and I see most people, especially younger users, want to be with the latest smart phones that have nice, big screens where they can watch movies with their friends and play games.
For mature people, those tiny little screens are useless anyways, so I see a convergence of the needs of young and old toward big screens and fast devices.
The latest phones are fast, most with 8 cores! And all have standard browsers and a mobile-responsive theme just renders beautifully on them.
I think developing a separate mobile site is not really needed.
Instead of this, perhaps invest in a mobile app but I am still trying to wrap my head around this.
The forum we use has it's built-in fully mobile version that is very good. But shifting between the full and mobile version, I prefer the full version on my phone. Older phones I think the mobile would render better.
