I agree with Nate's comments — I really don't want to include it unless it works on maybe 95% of all mobile phones.
If you haven't done extensive customization and have just used the standard WordPress pages and posts, it could be as easy as dropping in a new theme. Literally five minutes of work. It could get more complex if your current theme has custom post types or custom taxonomies. The easiest way to tell is to see how your site looks using the stock TwentyEleven theme. If it still looks good, then you can probably just swap the theme and be ready to go.

A responsive theme is better than a mobile version simply because with a separate mobile version you have two sites to maintain instead of one.

Re: QR Codes

Always give the option of choosing the full fat website too. A particular bugbear of mine is to be forced onto a rudimentary mobile site when I am using my iPhone 4S which has a Retina display. I much prefer to zoom & scroll on the ultra hi-res screen rather than be forced to use a dumbed down interface. I even encounter this sometimes with the iPad 3 being forced onto a mobile site when the screen resolution of the iPad is higher than most computer monitors less than 27".
