Upgrade Joomla! 3.0 is the first major CMS to be MOBILE READY!
The reason you should aim to be mobile friendly is that you are losing customers right now because of the frustrating experience they have on their mobile device.
Joomla 3.0 is RESPONSIVE in both the front and back end. That is, the page layout responds or adapts according to the screen size that it is being viewed on.
Upgrade Joomla 3.0 Considerations
Joomla 1.5 must be updated to 1.5.26 before migrating to Joomla 3.0.
Joomla 2.5 should be updated to 2.5.9. This is stable and reliable, and you can happily stay with it until 2014 (when support for it ends).
The Upgrade Joomla 3.0 is easy through a one-click upgrade button in the back-end of Joomla 1.6, 1.7 and 2.5. You might find yourself prompted to do so but you must resist the temptation until you have checked its wise to do so.

- Does your current web server meet the requirements to run Joomla 3.0? Check Joomla 3.0 technical requirements.
