Instagram almost definitely coming to BlackBerry 10
We've been wondering without any real indication one way or the other if Instagram would be making it's way to Windows Phone, but it seems like the app is definitely coming to BlackBerry 10. The way this news came out has actually been kind of funny.

Instagram almost definitely coming to BlackBerry 10
Originally, Venture Beat reported that BB 10 would not be seeing Instagram any time soon, but Kevin Michaluk of CrackBerry pulled a power card. According to Kevin, his sources are far better than Venture Beat and he says it's almost certain that BB 10 would get Instagram. 

According to sources, RIM still has a great relationship with Facebook, which now owns Instagram. Add that to the fact that Facebook was part of the keynote at the BlackBerry Jam Americas conference, and it seems pretty likely that Instagram would come to BB 10.

Of course, Facebook also has a great relationship with Microsoft, and we've yet to see Instagram for Windows Phone, but that could very well change with the launch of WP8.

The iPhone will destroy both the WP and what's left of RIM.

yes its true! why? since its more easy to make an app for BB10 than WP8 coz of WP's metrofied UI!

remember that android devs need not to rewrite the apps to make it available to BB's ecosystem?! they just need to do is copy and paste! so its easy to make apps for BB10 than WP8 coz of that...

but you might never know... maybe its also coming to WP coz MS has a share on FB?

but if you like instagram.. justwait..there's an alternative that is coming to WP.. MOLOME!!! works like instagram!

If Instagram doesn't show for Windows Phone by the end of the year, I'm most certainly getting a Sony Xperia T.

Or a grey GALAXY S III.

Or any other Android I know of that has an impressive camera. And expandable storage.

well im really thinking that instagram wont come to WP coz of its metrofied UI.... a lot of devs find it difficult to develop on WP... but who knew...coz now WP8 and win8 shares same kernel.. app development wont be a pain in the ass--they wont rewrite their apps! and maybe instagram will make an app for windows coz windows is the world's most use OS...

Well I don't think navteq is available in India and Blackberry maps don't work in India as well.
Therefore at the moment I am using Google navigation on S3.
