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.

Geez, I’m glad I’m not using a phone OS built by an advertising company, ’cause surely they would make an even gnarlier experience for me, right?!

This reminds me of iAds launch keynote, when they demoed being able to interact with ads that appeared and they would… take over the whole screen to give you an immersive shopping experience.

The ad would expand if you clicked on the ad. Far different.
