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.

That's because you are currently using a Windows Phone, am I correct? I can't speak for iOS, but go back to Android and you'll see full screen ads hijack several apps, mostly games but some productivity apps too.

I don't recall any full screen ads when I used my WP7 phone, but I get them all the time on my Nexus.
