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.

Nothing new here. If you install the "wrong" apps, you'll get spammed. Sad part is usually there are no alternatives.

I don't think we can blame Blackberry for using advertisement that app developers have put in place. Only solution as i see it is don't install ad-infested apps.
