PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Android and iPhone users [...] will also experience BlackBerry's ad content in the form of mobile takeovers starting the week of March 25. Those mobile takeovers will fill your screen with what looks like a BlackBerry 10's, demoing a specific feature like its photo 'Time Shift' capability that allows you to scroll through several captured options for each face in a picture." Yes. BlackBerry is going to run ads that hijack your entire smartphone's display. Sigh.

Or iOS, or Windows Phone, or anyone else. Various advertising platforms do this, and developers use them because they yield higher eCPM and encourage a higher CTR than other types of advertising.

Interactive ads are really lucrative, and guess what, people actually interact with them.
