    If this actually happens Microsoft needs to produce an ad promoting WP's current apps with Instagram front and center.

    Why should they have to be different than anyone else?

    I don't know about this article, but it is interesting that Nokia just launched a Windows Phone app called #2InstaWithLove intended to get Windows Phone users to show "Instagram just how passionate the Windows Phone community are". The app filters photos and gets you to promote them on social media, and they will be streamed on Nokia's site, 2instawithlove.com The app is in the Windows Phone store right now for Nokia users.

    This looks to me like a marketing ploy to build momentum for an announcement of a Nokia-exclusive Instragram app coming SOON!
    I tend to agree with that.

    For a Nokia like company doing this kind of move seems very unusual, weird actually. I mean MS and Nokia must know exactly what's going behind the whole Instagram thing.

    That said this paints two sides pic. Either this is a ad and teaser campaign of a short from Nokia (possibly exclusive Lumia Instagram) or instagram indeed has totally locked and have no plans to make the app.

    Too bad rumors are saying WP8 only. I don't care about Instagram but I have a friend with a Lumia 900 that will highly disappointed.
    I think the WP7.x deep down problems will limit it coming. Gallery integration and camera integration with the apps was very limited, if not non existent.

    Um, because they're responsible for millions of dollars and the jobs of hundreds or even thousands of employees maybe?

    Seeing this makes me feel even more confident that it's a marketing stunt. Why pay for ads which tell the world that the phone you're trying to sell doesn't have support for one of the biggest social networks?

    At the end of the day I think of Instagram as a fad. As soon as something better comes along or they do not self-implode than people will leave in droves. From a business perspective; by isolating a potential user base due to arrogance (at least this is what it sounds like) self-implode seems to be the route they will take.

    Of course Instagram will eventually disappear, but a platform has to support what's popular right now. It's really not about Instagram but about a service which is available on iOS and Android but not on WP. The must have services will change over time, and a mobile OS has to be able to support them relativity quickly or they will become irrelevant IMO.

    Not sure it has anything to do with anyone 'hating' anyone.
    Native Instagram App Is Not Coming to BlackBerry 10 - John Paczkowski and Mike Isaac - Mobile - AllThingsD


    And doesn't Facebook own Instagram? Facebook just bought an online advertising platform, Atlas, from Microsoft. So maybe there's not too much hating going on. Too bad MS didn't negotiate an Instagram app for wp8 as part of that deal, there's a lost opportunity. Facebook snags Microsoft's Atlas to boost ad sales | Microsoft - CNET News
    Facebook did, but when Facebook doesn't even have a Facebook app for WP, it doesn't give my confidence that they will bring Instagram over.
