I'm looking for CMS that would be good to run both regular and mobile version of a website.

I see there's Mobile Joomla! and I wonder if anyone has any experience with it.
Also, does anyone run Joomla! based sites that are mobile friendly without using Mobile Joomla!?

Finally, what other mobile friendly CMS would you recommend for migrating a site from static HTML (developed in DreamWeaver)? Something that is easy to design from start (I would use this opportunity to redesign the site).

Thanks

What's your timeline?

I think Wordpress has some strong mobile initiatives.

Drupal is aiming to make Drupal 8 a "mobile first" CMS and prioritize mobile and responsive design. The goal is to make it the best open source mobile CMS, but Drupal 8 doesn't even hit code freeze until July 1, 2013

Thanks. No big rush. I also saw that Joomla! 3 recommends waiting for version 3.5 in September 2013 which should be fully mobile ready.

Wordpress is fine, but I was not sure how would I approach it from my own design perspective. I'm so used to using themes.

Actually, which well known platform is the most friendly when about manual site design?

Every CMS are aware of the mobile devices, but you need to take care of the theme/template you will use would be mobile optimized. According to me wordpress is good in all aspects of seo whether for pc/laptop/mobile devices.

Yes, Adaptive Theme, Omega and Zen are all "mobile first" Drupal themes in their current incarnations.
