    Responsive design is fine for blogs, but when you start getting to more complex sites such as ecommerce platforms, having a dedicated mobile is often the better approach.

    I agree withTakeshi. Dedicated mobile sites continue to load faster and they seem to display more relevant content. It would be interesting (but way too expensive) to see a side by side test of a responsive website vs a dedicated mobile site.

    Takeshi, you are spot on. Responsive quickly gets complicated (and expensive) when you are dealing with anything other than moving around texts and images. Ecommerce sites are typically a collection of multiple applications and technologies. You can’t just apply media queries and assume shoppers will get a good experience.
