How this exactly effects website SEO will have to be determined...but I'm willing to bet that eventually websites that are not "mobile-friendly" will lose SEO ranking to sites that are more mobile friendly.

Thus if vBulletin 4 is not mobile-friendly and vBulletin 5 is (it is)...then vBulletin 5 will have an SEO advantage vs. vBulletin 4.
Mobile-friendly is meaningless with 4K resolution phones and 5G technology.
