It seems like recently everyone is talking about "the mobile internet" and how everything must be mobile ready and so on. I love your Themes and Plugins, especially Builder and I also have noticed that you offer a mobile plugin. As I have no idea about mobile websites yet my question would be what the best approach for a mobile wordpress site is!? Do I choose a Builder child theme and then create a similiar mobile design with the mobile plugin so that the two versions will have the same feeling for the visitors?

There is also a lot of buzz around "responsive themes" and to me the idea sounds quite intriguing:


Responsive design has been buzzing on the internet sinceEthan Marcotteâs post on A List Apartlast May. It takes into account the fact that there is a growing number of devices that people are using to interact with the web. Everything from smartphones, tablets, large monitors, small monitors, e-readers, mobile phones, games consoles, netbooks and even my little Nintendo DS.Responsive websites respond to the device upon which they are viewed. That means that when new devices arrive on the market a responsive site should look great on it.

Does it mean that there is no need to create a separate mobile version or use a separate plugin? Will you also be offering responsive themes or is builder maybe already responsive?
