Wider webdesign that work on widescreen or responsive design?
I have checked many resources and need to know if you have feedback:
should we set mobile detection and redirect to mobile phones, tablets, desktop version or we eliminate detection and use responsive design as this has many usability issues like content goes straight from desktop version to mobile version etc.
Detection can be suited for each type...

If you are worried about some of your desktop content being inappropriate for mobile, this is a good opportunity to ask if you really need that desktop content at all. Many sites are full of unnecessary junk, and thankfully, the whole issue of mobile design is bringing that into focus.
To quote from Twitter:
“Mobile users want to see our menu, hours, and delivery number. Desktop users definitely want this 1mb png of someone smiling at a salad.”
