Instagram is no doubt a popular app used to take photos on both iOS and Android, and we can still remember the day when it finally arrived on Android and the big deal that everyone made about it. Well it seems that the fuss people made about the Android version might not happen for Blackberry 10 as Facebook has rumored to have said (via VentureBeat) that they have no plans to release Instagram for Blackberry 10. As some of you guys are aware, Facebook bought Instagram awhile back and while Facebook is working on a native app for Blackberry 10, it seems that’s the extent of Facebook’s involvement with Blackberry 10.

Of course this does not mean that there won’t be Instagram for Blackberry 10 forever – there is a chance that Facebook could be feeling out the Blackberry 10 ecosystem first before deciding if it might be worth their while to port Instagram onto Blackberry 10. In any case Blackberry 10 is expected to launch in Q1 of 2013, so there’s still a few months for Facebook to change their minds. In the meantime it looks like would-be Blackberry 10 users will need to find an alternative way to capture and upload hipster-like photos.

Update – As it turns out the folks at CrackBerry claim that Instagram is a certainty for Blackberry 10. Since nothing officially has been announced we guess we will have to wait and see how things pan out. Until then take this with a grain of salt.
