It is not very much functional and does not offer much features like WordPress mobile site. Today most of the people use their smartphones to surf internet and a fact says that in 2013, More people will use smartphones than desktop's, So it is really important that you build a fully functional mobile site so that you don't loose traffic coming from mobile visitors.
