You should consider a Theme/Template built with Responsive design.   This type of Theme works with Computer Browsers, iPads and iPhones (all in 1 website),

You would need to adjust the CSS to make the theme responsive but that's actually a bit of a chore for TwentyEleven. There's more to it that just setting containers to percentage widths.

 Ask the previous Expert said, you may want to pivot to a new theme designed to be responsive out of the box.  WordPress now ships with the TwentyTweleve theme and that's responsive and there are a bunch of others that you can search the repository on Wordpress.org for more free themes that are responsive.

Your other options are to add a plugin that has a mobile option.  The latest iteration of Jetpack does this by adding a responsive CSS file or you could go with WPTouch, which will add an entirely new mobile theme.

Also, have you tried disabling the share bar that floats on the page?  Those objects typically screw up mobile browsers and can also affect the base theme display.
