I still think that responsive design is a hot balloon that has not been critically assessed. I'm not against responsive design per se. I've used them and converted some of my sites already using that. But they are not perfect solutions to serve users better. At best they are a stop gap.
I'm still a believer that a dedicated mobile site is the best solution and used without any redirection. Allowing users to pick what version they have wile serving them a page that is easily accessible on a mobile device because it is responsive is the best way to serve users.
I think people will become lazy with the responsive mantra. Just shrinking a page and showing results within a width that fits a screen is not enough.
Webmasters have to understand users, specifically those that use mobile devices and tablets and then built for them. Responsive design shoves a one size fits all approach to delivering information on a Website that may not fulfill the needs of all users.
I have kept all mobile sites for my mobile users as they offer the best way for them to use the site and was developed with their needs in mind. Users who surf on phones are different in their surfing than those that surf on tablets or desktops even if the contents they seek is the same.
