    I think it's more about hype and bragging rights. I doubt more than 5% of smartphone users in the US use Instagram. Even less worldwide.

    It will be lowercase not uppercase whereas other phones will make the singular i into uppercase.
    I just put that exact phrase into my phone and WP8 automatically capitalized the "I".

    to be fair (save my Pride), I already have Facebook and Twitter, where I show of my amateur photography skills and to show of my windows phone camera... Did so with my 900. Doing it with my 920. So I want to strick at the IOS heart of image sharing. Even downgraded pic quality of some awesome night shot would do wonders in showing my iPhone 5 carrying friends that the new kid on the block is something special (the new kid being of course the 920)

    Ontopic again ... am not seeing many WP7.5s and only one WP 8 in the wild so far. But I live in deep, deep Apple-Land with a few Androids trying to get a live.
    It's just a way for people to share photos and comments a lot easier than it is with facebook. There is an app on WP called Eyeem that works just like Instagram. I used it and actually liked it. There is a way to check photos taken by people around your location via GPS tagging which is pretty cool. I for one didn't see what the big fuss was about instagram but using a similar app I can see why people would want it especially if they have a pool of friends who are on it sharing photos with each other and you can't.

    As far as seeing more WP out in the wild I have seen a few. But in my family we all have WP lol. I have a red Lumia 920. My brother and his wife each have a white L920, My sister just got a L820. I want to get her a yellow wireless shell for it. My little brother is using a Lumia 710 and my mom a Samsung Focus. As soon as their contract is up with T-Mobile I'm going to switch them either to a 920 or 820. I love the group feature as it's a great way to share things with the family.

    I have had a lot of people notice my red Lumia though and I find that interesting. Red helps the design of the L920 stand out then they take a look at my start screen and start asking me about how it works. They love that it's fast and responsive.

    Thanks, you almost got me there with the "I wanna..." punt.
    Frankly, i am not a photography kind of person. Till now, the no. of snapshots i have taken with my 900 camera, i can actually count it with my own hands.
    Btw, the "narcissistic" post is juz an impulsive tongue-in-cheek quote.
    I got nothing against IG. Hey! Anything that helps in making Windows Phone more successful & entrenched, I am all for it.
    Enjoy your 920 ;)

    Dude, I typed in exactly what you typed right there, and this is what I got:

    I watched it, with my very own eyes, autocorrect the "i" to an "I".

    Who knows? But it is. It has a huge amount of users and all those users want a phone with Instagram on it. Isn't that enough to justify the presence of an Instagram app on WP? If you don't get it and won't use it, don't. But there are tons of people who would, and that's the important thing.

    Lol I thought I clicked on the wrong thread for a second... I just typed same things you've typed so far and they all capitalize. Might be something with your keyboard settings..

    Someone else said it first, I just confirmed it, i'm sure it's supposed to capitalise it just doesn't. Using English UK with nothing changed.

    EDIT: The issue is solved apparently only US English can capitalise the I automatically. Damn you Microsoft. *shakes fist*

    I am pretty sure the trick with the capital I is to use the autocorrect a couple of times to change the i to I and then it learns that is what you want to do. That is how it worked on my 920 anyways.

    I have not seen one, but also only seen one iPhone5. Most people have some odd-looking HTC device with an odd camera lens bulge (or similar). I am deep in US Cellular country.

    Guess I have to repost this... again.

    Ok I'm saying this in bold because I'm really tired of repeating this across various tech sites and forums. Instagram is not just an app to apply crappy filters to photos, in fact thats like .00002% of what it is, Instagram is a SOCIAL NETWORK. Sites like Twitter and Facebook become cluttered with so much useless crap that you don't care about, like what your sister's friend's roommate ate for lunch, or a stupid ad or promotion for this or that. Instagram gets rid of all that and provides you with a clean easy way to keep up with your friends without dealing with all that extra junk you don't care about. Trick is to not apply the filters (although I actually like some of them, gasp) that way what you're left with is simply a stream of hopefully interesting photos that tell a story, where you've been, what you like, who you like.

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words, well thats a **** of a lot of Facebook posts.

    I bought mine on the the first day they were available. The next day I hopped a plane to Vegas. That afternoon I saw a dude rocking a white one. Didn't see any more in the wild until today, in Philly, I saw a Verizon 820. Not many, but I only saw one WP7 device in the entire year it was out.

    @Hiiiiiiiii - battery life is easy fixed if you search these forums. you can stop a couple things like tap-to-send NFC and make sure Nokia Drive isn't on in the background - Settings - Application Background Tasks - i also drained battery completely to zero and made the phone turn itself off. turn it on again and let it die again. and then recharge to full again and that seems to have helped. i also think there's some dodgy apps there that cause it like WeatherFlow. have installed it twice and both times have seen the location icon display regularly and battery seems to drain fast.
