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.

If they did this on my phone, it would make me want to actively avoid buying their products... not like I wanted to buy their shit anyway. But there's got to be enough mouth breathers out there who respond to this kind of advertising, to make it worth their while.

Fortunately, I use AdAaway, so the company formerly known as RIM can take their ads and go fuck themselves ;)

"Mouth breathers" don't usually go for advanced business devices like BlackBerry phones.
