Yes, you can use Joomla cache or some other third party cache plugins but you can't use the Joomla cache plugin.

As an alternative to the default Joomla! cache plugin, you can install and use the great plugin JotCache that offers the same feature but with a more advanced setup that allows you to manage 2 separate cache for desktop and mobile devices as visible in the image below.
