We're not very far apart. It's often impractical to try to translate an existing site into a responsive design version, and you can easily make the site pretty ugly when you do. I'm still trying to wrap my head around designing for screens that could be as small as 320x280, and wondering if those phones are as doomed as well.
I'm much less concerned about tablets, though. It seems to me that those screens are large enough to deal with a conventional desktop/laptop site, even if it means the user will be scaling in and out. And since those users won't often be standing or otherwise "on the go" like a cell phone user might well be, it's not nearly as much of an inconvenience for them. So lumping them in with mobiles just doesn't feel right.
