As Apple shuts down Quattro Wireless in favour of its own advertising platform iAds, it seems that RIM is looking to make a similar move into mobile advertising.

Ad free pocket devices would sell me!
We should all remember that the portable device user pays the freight for receiving these damn distractions, whilst also true for landline InterNet the cost/delay is less significant.
For me advert elimination would be a PLUS!
just because you put an i in front of it

I hate advertising so much.....
I’ll have to install ad blockers on my mobile too.
So Apple et all, are shoving more crap in my face and I'm paying for the bandwidth, and possibly for the ad blocker. We should sue them for wasting resources on a device I purchase.
Just who are those people who rush out an buy stuff just because thye saw an ad?

Owning an iphony doesn't make you smarter, just more gullible. :)
Start a web ad company with 8 mates.

Are you new to the industry?
Apple took over the 'evil' mantra from Microsoft ages ago.
Are the marketin geniuses from you know who........
..........really calling this "iAds"? I must say that Steve Jobs really has an infectious sense of humour!
iAds; making dyslexics chuckle since 2010
