Instagram might finally arrive on Windows Phone on June 26th

Instagram might finally arrive on Windows Phone on June 26th

Instagram has been sorely absent from Windows Phone’s app portfolio and both Microsoft and Nokia have put great effort into bringing the popular photo manipulation and sharing service to the WP mobile platform. Now, they might have finally succeeded as sources speaking for Chinese publication WPDang said Instagram is likely coming to Windows Phone on June 26th.

Instagram is expected to arrive as a Nokia exclusive app for Windows Phone and its alleged debut at the end of June would come just before the rumored Nokia EOS, a 41-megapixel cameraphone running on Windows Phone.

In the meantime, while waiting for Instagram to arrive on Windows Phone, many developers have come up with apps similar in functionality. Some like Instance for Windows Phone are definitely great alternatives that you can use right now. Having the high-profile Instagram officially though would definitely help Nokia and the platform as a whole.

I hope it's not exclusive to Lumia devices. HTC user will be mad, and i totally understand them.

The power of PureView............ ended on Instagram :)

Isn't it funny when you brag about your Lumia PureView cameras or EOS PureView... and you just put it on Instagram where the size and quality gets downsized.

HAHA :) its life.

The article says otherwise. That was obvious, and pretty much a given at that, considering how much effort Nokia made to get Instagram on WP, while the others (including HTC) didn't do crap. :)

You're not one to say which OS gets an app and why. Of course they'll make an app for it because they know that it'll be a success.

Superiority Complex much?

I am so ecstatic about this! If this is going to be a Nokia exclusive, HTC and Samsung Windows phone owners will be fuming! Bring it on, Nokia!

For the love of god do you just love trolling WP related articles? My guess is that you secretly love the platform otherwise why go thru so much trouble you spend more time trolling WP articles than you do android.. Give it a break you pathetic little child.

It has been confirmed that Instagram will indeed be "EXCLUSIVE" to Nokia Lumia devices. As for the exact launched date take this rumour with a grain of salt. The Instagram official App for Windows Phone devices has been in lab testing since March 2013. It is alleged that Nokia/Instagram will release the app for Lumia devices to coincide with the launch of the lumia 925 devices. Stay tuned!!!

Instagram is useful for people which have phones with bad cameras to hide it is horrible. You do not need Instagram if you have cameras like are on Lumias ;).

If Instagram didn't want to make an app because of the last of WP users, why would they limit Instagram to only Lumia users?

Because Lumia = WP, in case you forgot.

I think it will be good that it's on windows phone because it will help wp gain popularity. Personally I love the Instance app but I will download this,just in case they remove Instance from the store.

I don't mind some exclusivity, but I hope this isn't exclusive for long.
