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.

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


Well, that's probably why all the top Android games are about collecting coins to unlock power-ups that help you collect more coins to unlock even more expensive power-ups etc ... that is until you crack and just pay for the god damned coins.
