So is it real or is it keeping-it-real-fake? Obviously if it is the real deal then that could only mean that an official Instagram for Windows Phone app is on the way very soon.
Of course, if it is fake then we have a hearty band of jokers or a lone actor looking for their 15 minutes of fame. The account’s only tweet, “Good things come to those who wait! :),” obviously gets the enthusiasts excited. However, in no time, folks responded with calls out that it was all a farce and understandably so.
What is our take on this? If we end up being wrong, we will take the heat, but we are going to call this fake all the way and we have several reasons to draw that conclusion (though we are going to follow the feed just in case).
We will follow this to see if anything comes of it, but we do not want to get your hopes up, so take with a grain of salt.
Finally, Nokia went out of its way to announce the arrival of Hipstamatic to the Windows Phone platform, a nice achievement given that it is not even available on Android yet. Plus, that app has the ability to tie into Instagram anyway. We could squeeze out a few more reasons, such as the lack of a native Facebook application for Windows Phone, but think our point is made pretty succinctly. If we end up being wrong, we will beg forgiveness and rejoice with the rest of you Windows Phone fans. We just do not want you passing out from holding your breath.
