While Instagram might be enjoying a large user base on iOS and Android, at least as far as official apps are concerned, those on Windows Phone and BlackBerry 10 have to resort to third-party apps instead. In fact last we heard, Instagram for BlackBerry 10 might not be coming soon as the company’s CEO stated that they had no plans to develop for BlackBerry 10 at the moment, but thanks to a leaked screenshot, perhaps Instagram might have had a change of heart.
According to the leaked screenshot spotted in the CrackBerry forums, it shows off the BlackBerry Hub on the BlackBerry Q10 with the Instagram tab on it. The person who posted the photo claims that Instagram for BlackBerry will be announced within the next few weeks and is actually meant to coincide with the release of the BlackBerry 10.2 update. While this definitely sounds like good news, it should be noted that Instagram has been pretty quiet on the matter, not to mention its CEO actually confirmed that they weren’t developing for BlackBerry 10 at the moment.
Of course it is entirely possible that they had a change of heart, or perhaps wanted to keep things a secret, but in any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but hopefully we will be able to get more official information at a later date.
