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.

Yeah. From an app dev POV, people forget that the app is $0.99 cents, not $10. You're asking a lot for a relatively small sum of money from developers.

So when developers go the extra mile to make an app free upfront, other monetization strategies must be used.
