Instagram is coming to BlackBerry 10

Don't believe everything you read.

Instagram coming to BlackBerry 10... yeah, it'll happen.

So here's the deal... VentureBeat posted an "exclusive" article this afternoon saying Facebook has no plans to release Instagram for BlackBerry 10.

No offense to VentureBeat, but whatever sources they have that are familiar with the matter, I have better sources that are even more familiar with this matter. I checked in with my contacts that all but gave formal confirmation that RIM continues to have a strong relationship with Facebook, who now owns Instagram, and that you will see Instagram come to BlackBerry 10.

Remember, Facebook took to the keynote stage at BlackBerry Jam Americas just a couple weeks ago to show off an early preview of Facebook on BlackBerry 10. Do you really think they're going to snub us BlackBerry users on Instagram?

As for my confidence level on this one... let's just say if I'm wrong... how about I'll buy somebody a car. Leave a comment to this post telling the good folks at Instagram how much you're looking forward to a BlackBerry 10 version of thir photo-sharing social service. And if you don't see Instagram for BlackBerry 10 hit, I'll pick the name of one of the lucky commenters and buy them a car.

PS. While I've been on my Mobile Nations World Tour I've been on Instagram a lot. I love Instagram. You can find me there @crackberrykevin.

Yay!!!

P.S. The car's got to be mine since I started the thread!!!!

I'll take a 2013 Camaro ZL1 in black with a red Racing Stripe Please!!!

Or just Instagram wrould be fine too I guess...

BBPandy

I want a 2014 Mazda CX-5 Running QNX

B4 today I was hoping Instagram was coming to BB10, now I'm kinda hoping it isn't :D

Emu the Foo

We can do beter that a camaro and a mazda withour breaking the bank. So either a 2013 Nissan Gtr black edition, I'll let you pick the colour, or a ZR1 in either dark grey or blue, again you pick the colour...

Ps. See what I did there? I am an american but I spelled color like a canadian...

GeneralHerzog

Ya, but do you say ZeeR1 or ZedR1?

Kev, what about a truck? Perhaps a King Ranch?

BBPandy

Or a RangRover....Kevin are you planning on giving us your RangRover?

BBPandy

Or Better yet, the QNX Car2 Jeep!

the brother

lookin fwd to a QNX Porshe! haha

also, when you say arriving on BB10 - do u mean at launch? also available on ALL BB10 devices? like my PlayBook?!?!

make it so.

Yandar

No you used the correct English spelling.

Dave79

I'll take a Ferrari - any kind old or new.

slagman5

I'll take a Hennessey GT1000 and race you in a Ferrari any day. :-P

slagman5

Definitely a ZR1 over a Nissan GTR...

But for me, I'll take the 2013 GT500... :-)

slagman5

Lol, yah, somehow I think getting a car will be better than getting instagram... ;-)

kpbutton

I'm sure Kevin wouldn't offer up a car unless he knows better. But just in case, here is my entry. :)

J_R_TheMotorMan

I'll take a kenne belle 2.8l 2V Supercharger and a new interceptor tranny and 17" rims n tires for my crown vic p71.

If it doesn't make dollars, how does it make sense????????

pooger

I'd like one of those mining trucks that are found in Utah that have wheels the size of like 6 story buildings. I'd like to park it on my driveway.

1magine

If only there was only someway to figure out who had the correct information. OOOOHHH IF ONLY WE COULD GO FORWARD IN TIME 7 MONTHS AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

Well - would you look at that. It's 7 months later. Well thank goodness we believed what BBRY told Kevin. Otherwise we'd look silly. Oh, right.

mjgallaway

Instagram is so over-rated. It really is.

TripNFry

really looking forward to trying out the best social photo app on the upcoming best mobile OS out there!!

shemaree09

A chance to win a car!?!? lol

um, Instagram, I would love to see your app available for BB10, RIM needs it!!!

berrybait

I have confidence Netflix, Skype and Instagram will be there.

Puz_zled

I think ultimately we can do WAY better than Netflix. They are dying as more and more people pull the plug on their service after realizing the cost of the bandwidth puts you at the mercy of your service provider. They will eventually squeeze Netflix out as they cut content deals themselves to deliver over their pipes and cell networks. By the way I'm looking forward to Instagram although once everybody owns a Berry again it'll be BBM all the way!!
Yeah it's from my BB10 ready Playbook.

mnhockeycoach99

I 100% agree with you.. I personally think Netflix sucks. I've said all along that I think RIM should reach out to Dish Network/Blockbuster to forms some sort of streaming partnership (including new release movies, tv series, and streaming tv from you home)..

ps.. I don't doubt Kevin.. but if Instagram doesn't show up, is an Audi A8, BMW 7 series or Mercedes CLS550 part of the car give away? :-)

berrybait

Just said I think it will be there. No comment on usefulness.

HabsFan9860

...I dumped NetFlix...total shit..once lousy quality on a big screen...I installed the Video Store on both of my PB's...and it is quite good. The selection keeps increasing day after day, and the rental/buy prices are very reasonable...the picture quality is great. and the Wish List feature is handy...and Skype is a non issue...I don't see the big deal with it...

BlackBerry Torch 9860 BBOS 7.1
BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1.xxxx
BlackBerry PlayBook LTE OS 2.0.xxxx

Joe257

The more apps the better, but these three key apps are critical for the success of the platform.

Kevin, I just want a QNX loaded Porsche with "BlackBerry is Bold" painted on both sides :) I'd drive it everywhere!

ignites

i will take kevin up on the offer of that car =)

AVPTI

Wouldn't make sense not to be here.

Michelle Haag

Come on Instagram!! I refuse to carry 2 devices just to use your service. Get on The 10!! :D

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

Is there anyway I can get an account before hand?

Elric_Edward

It will be nice to have Instagram on BB10... I hope you are listening to us....

ClassyBOLD

Kevin,

Just to clarify, are you basing your conclusion on the fact that you were told RIM has a strong relationship with Facebook? Or were you actually told that Instagram was coming to BBX?

Thunderbuck

I don't need a car, but I don't think you'll need to give one away, either.

I'm not big on conspiracy theories, but I do think there are people out there who want to keep the bad news coming for RIM.

ClassyBOLD

Sweet! You may have just made my day

mnhockeycoach99

Have there been any other sweet applications that you have been told by trusted sources are coming to BB10?

1magine

Kevin - I've been 7 months in the future, it's not here. You may want to tone it down so as not to be embarassed.

jojo212

Hope you're right. if not, win-win situation.

bluetroll

you tell them, Kevin!

I'm looking to Instagram on BB10 because I want to see all those raunchy photos girls post of themselves!

AVPTI

Wow...you could also just get a MySpace account

Paintedeyes

i'm pretty positive BB10 will have instagram.

kidkamel

That's awesome! Can't wait to see what I else is coming to BB10

Bustarargs

I was just saying to a friend earlier today that BB10 will need Instagram on board for consumers to catch on!

Alex_Hong

absolutely agree. Despite not being a huge fan of it, having it would at least make consumers give it a thought. I bought a used Lumia 800 from someone who actually quoted, that he was selling it because it doesn't have instagram All i hope is that BB10 would get it before WP8. :P

Xader

Woooo!

Bring on the $150 '81 Corolla!

I kid, of course. I believe Kevin...

416to604

my friends really want me to have instagram when i get a bb10 device

Bold 9900 - Playbook 32GB - Lumia 800

djenkins6

Looking forward to instagram on bb10

ryanlrobinson

Instagram is one of those services that I don't really care about not having, but I probably would use if it was available.

SK122387

this is a huge deal. I don't even use my Instagram that much, but having Instagram on a BlackBerry will be a major driving force behind sales of BlackBerry 10.

martinjdub

I'd like any car...

so I can drive Jennifer Van Grove to a McDonalds drive through...
Take a pic of our Big Macs meals and post em to Instagram with my BlackBerry10 while she rides shotgun

--------

kritikal

hate to burst your bubble but you won't be able to post pics to instagram with BB10 if you actually win this "contest" :P

PostMortem

That was hilarious, although I can't help but think he did that on purpose...

cpsquires

Will be great to not be left out of the latest thing when BB10 comes out.

gimpy39

I'm in on that offer.

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

hello. Porsche 918 spyder. Or instagram is fine too. This is one of the top five checked off. now netflix, skype, etc.

sirfly2fly

Just make sure to ad BBM to it, and it will be taken to another level

haricharan

Would like a car..but that would mean BB10 didn't get Instagram. tough decision - to wait for a car or Instagram on BB10.

Bilaal

THIS IS WHY I LOVE KEVIN, GOTTA LOVE THE STRAIGHT TO THE POINT ATTITUDE.

oddboy

Bring it on! Instagram for BB10. Believe!

the_game969

Hey Crackberry Kevin,I want a Dodge Viper 08+ :D

With that aside,i'm pretty sure we are going to have our Instagram

mick868

We have to get Instagram on BB10 !!!!!

lengend

I don't see the big deal about Instragram, but I would like a car...but also at the same time I can't doubt Kevin lol.

gjohnsto

lemme in on some of this action!

johnsoj2us

Thanks for confirming without actually confirming Kevin, glad that someone can fight back a lil bit without actually saying it.

randall2580

I have always believed that if CrackBerry Kevin says it it must be true but now that I am registered on this thread and therefore eligible for the car - part of me really hopes he is wrong and he has a friend over at BMW the M3 has been on my mind lately...maybe if the guys at Instagram need a new car someone might show them this thread and we can all...aw rats I guess Instagram is coming to BB10.

BerryRipe

F*#k instagram give me a Benley!

CrackBerry Is My Choice Of Drug

kupfernigk

A Benley was an old and crappy Honda motorcycle. I suspect you mean a Bentley, which (according to Ettore Bugatti) is the fastest truck in Europe.
Personally I'd prefer something I could actually afford to run, but then I'm a killjoy.

crwblyth

Might as well comment. I'm expecting instagram, but a car would be better for me personally ;)

gquan14

I LOVE instagram!! It will be a major success for Blackberry 10!

kemj

HAHA!! I see this post as "Shut up VentureBeat, you know nothing you PoS!" Loved it! Thanks Kev!

STAY OPEN TO POSSIBILITIES. BE BOLD.

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

On the Venturebeat article:
"Then again, should BlackBerry 10 be a surprise hit..."

Jennifer Van Grove you are an uneducated FOOL. Please advise what you have seen about Blackberry 10 that is so horrible that it will be a suprise if it is a hit?

Everyone click on her picture and look at her. She plucks her eyebrows WAY too much. Yuck!

EVERYONE TWEET KEVIN'S BLOG TO GET THE TRUE STORY OUT

To flame the other article shes on twitter @jbruin

Ntario

I want Instagram please

sf49ers

BB10 will get Instagram

chsr40

Well, I wasn't aware of the fact that anybody really gives a dang about instagram. But if this app is mandatory to ensure RIM's competitiveness, it better be ported to BB10.

Yet, I still don't care.

gregorylkelly

I have never used instagram and honestly don't get the hype, but that's probably because I'm a BlackBerry user. If Instagram came to BB, I'd definitely give it a shot and would probably get hooked. Most BB users are in a similar situation as me, so that is why Instagram should come to BB.

Facebook spent a billion dollars on Instagram and they are currentlt ignoring 78 million potential users. I understand not putting time into developing for a "dead" OS, but it would be stupid to ignore a brand new OS.

I agree, Instagram will be on BB10.

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

80 million. lets not forget the user base is growing

EsJayDee

Man, I still love the way the Dev Alpha looks. Wish that were the final hardware.

Oh yeah, Instagram, cool.

peterallcdn

Can't believe I'm actually hoping I don't win a car! INSANE!!! lol (Okay, on second thought, I'll take one...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

But really, I'm glad to hear it's coming. I'm not a user of it yet but I'm sure I will be when it comes to BlackBerry. I only use facebook and twitter from my phone... so if Instagram wants users like me, they'll have to bring an app.

Jackal99

A car would be nice but I'd rather have Instagram on BB10

mur44t

Instagram! I believe in Kevin's sources! But just in case, count me in :)

urya

It's geat to hear one of the major app is showing up on BB10!

mphillips828

Would love to see instagram on BB10 at launch!! i keep getting told by my iphone friends i need to get an iphone just so i can use instagram! but i will wait for BB10 and stay BlackBerry by Choice!

aminrajabi

Instagram? Yes please.

ferre_kun

Lol I've already posted a comment on one of venture beat employee right after she posted about it on facebook. I said nice wordplay lol.

jnguyen2

Isn't Instagram overrated? And Kevin, it better be a new car. :P

SCrid2000

What kind of a car are we talking about here?

f1mx

What type of car are we talking about?

playbookster

Yay for instagram! Now i too can take pictures of delicious food :)

greatwiseone

It will be awesome to have Instagram on BB10. However, the guy on stage was NOT from Facebook. He works for RIM.

DuexNoir

I haven't used Instagram before but if it shows up on BB10, I'll buy it just to show support.

~I am BlackBerry by choice~

johuntbb

This one is hot! Truly the fearless leader of BB....

Krack

@Crackberrykevin is one confident son of a gun. Looking forward to BB10!

BBGrind

I refuse to carry around 2 phones like my other friends, come on BB10 we need Instagram also Netflix, Skype and Slingbox.

Anilu7

Never used Instagram but it sounds good so BRING IT!! Especially if that'll get those who've never used BB's to switch. Agree with the posters above that Netflix uses WAY too much of your data and just gives the carriers tons of your money. Dropbox (called Bluebox for BB) is already available for BB7 and PlayBook. Skype...yeah, that would be good.

Oh, yeah, I believe in Crackberry Kevin but, just in case, 2013 Mercedes-Benz S-class in silver for me! =D

zensen

Can I believe in this post :p

Personally, I think fb paid way to much for this app. I've seen the app in action and you cant even view the pics larger (unless im using it wrong).

But if this app pushes people over to bb10 I'm all for them porting it over. Let it happen and according to kev it will!

dardanian

Kevin, I love you, man.

You turned this into a win-win situation. If VentureBeat is right you give me a chance to win a car. If Kevin is right, I end up with an awesome app on my THE TEN. This is totally awesome.

Way to go, Kevin, way to go.

EchuOkan1

That's very bold, Kevin. I am not a Facebook user and I am not familiar with Instagram (other that what you just shared about it). However, Facebook seems to be a must have for many users (my wife included). So, for those of you that use this application (in whatever OS you use), I hope you get hour wish. That way we can get you off you non-BB device and into our OS to gain market share.

13david77

How about Words with Friends, too! Or is that not cool anymore...? Can't keep up with all the latest app trends. I don't know, haven't used either, but if its good enough for iPhone and android, it had better be good enough for BB10. You're gonna have your work cut out for you, developers, as soon as BB10 takes that number 3 spot ;)

iseeblackberry

I am not sure if it's cool, but I love "Words with Friends" on my PlayBook.

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

Blackberry has the number 3 spot. We just have to keep it now.

mhinc

I hope you are wrong, but ONLY for my sake Kev! I will take a subaru impreza wrx sti please :)

Sparro

I don't like everybody bashing on RIM. Yes they have let us down a few times in the past and they even lost their way for a while when they thought they were untouchable. But BlackBerry 10 will be right up there with iOS, Android and Window Phone 8 will be at the number 4 spot.
Whenever something bad happens to RIM everybody yaps like a scrappy little dog, but when Apple hands out a bunch of crap in the form of iOS 6 and an iPhone 5 that is a good looking device but missing some key features for 2012.... you don't hear those scrappy little dogs yap... wtf?
I am a proud Canadian and RIM is a Canadian company and I wanna see them regain some trust and market share in North America again!

el_excelsior

+1

I definitely agree with you

TheEliteOne

This is a must comment, especially since I could win a car...but let's be serious you have Thor's #. This is a sure thing. I never been one to want instagram but it's a great thing for BB10 to have!

FrankPCS

...but I wouldn't mind settling for Instagram for BB10.

ordigas

Come on Facebook / Instagram! Bring us another great BB10 App! ... or not, so Kevin gives me a car! ;)

The Me

I don't care about the car, I just want BB10 to have everything I want!

(I'll still take the car if it isn't on it...)

SFWriter

This is great news. Its good for BB users, Facebook and Instagram and Blackberry. Glad to hear it. I can't wait.

robtanz

I want Archie Andrews' jalopy

LiLAzNNewB

Damnn Kevin, :P Pretty confident there, haha.

But yeah, no doubt it'll be there for BB10 :)

garryporter

Kevin,

Thanks for the clarification on Instagram on BB10. It's been a cumbersome time since Rim's announcement of BBX/BB10 with all the negative press, however the time frame is winding down now and it's almost here. The negative press is really annoying. I'm hoping that the qwerty device does release relatively quickly after the all touch device. I also can't wait for Instagram.

I Love my BlackBerry

Adhamalghamdi

maybe this is the first time for blackberry users that they hope Instagram won't be available for BlackBerry 10 !

LOL

battery

Well this is a good way to not break your NDA. Awesome!

ferre_kun

Some say kevin is the stig's canadian cousin, and the cookies is not a lie :p

kajenius

You my friend got some giant kahunas. But then again you did buy a $1000 vavuzela, app so crazy?

cajualaddict

My girlfriend keeps asking me about instagram, so this is great news. If not, I have chance to win a car.. Woohoo but likelihood of this would be slim to none :) on the car. Thx

SueyChoy

LOL kevin you're that confident eh? meh im not doubting but i'm sure instagram will be available for BB10.

BB_Bmore

If the default pictures app is anything like I hear its gonna be then I could give a hoot about instagram. Before too long it will be integrated into facebook mobile somehow some way.

z1nsane

I rather have the car than Instagram lol but I'm cool with either result =)

Fnord

I enjoy Instagram and would love it on my future BB10 device. Worst case, I'll still enjoy BB10 while riding in my new Kevin donated car! Win Win

JAKrzysztow

Hope you're right! Posting just in case! Got my car all picked out!

TeaBoy

MoLoME Smilar to InstraGram.

BaconMunch

BAM do I want a car or Instragram on BB10, it's 50/50 really! Bring it on!

iseeblackberry

Kevin... If you don't have the "inside scoup" no one does... I'm a believer.. Keep on doing what you do! Thanks

nocfury

My wife keeps threatening to leave BlackBerry specifically because she's unable to screw up... err... "enhance"... her photos with Instagram. She will be delighted to hear this news as I have been making her stick with BlackBerry until 10 comes out in Q1.

z_scorpio_z

facebook/instagram please don't release app for BB10 so I can enjoy my new free car :) Thanks in advance CBK.

ThinkReferrals

I am pretty confident that Instagram will support BB10. Any news on a working sideload for Playbook?

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

Lol were never satisfied with the blog post. We always want more.

dgburns

I'm pretty confident we will see it too, but with the way things are going my confidence is not 100%.

BBshark

NISSAN GT-R OR AUDI S5 IN BLUE PLEASE! LOL

marcho11

I don't use Instagram, but I know how many people do and consider it a "must have" app. So I'm glad to hear (from Kevin) that its coming. And if not, I'll take the car

stpara

Car or Instagram. Instagram or car. Choices, choices. Ok,I'll take Instagram on BB10.

toobs623

I really don't care about instagram except to sell more bbs. So give me that car!

BB-04

Right on Kevin keep the good news coming.

BlackBerry by Choice.
Torch 9860, Playbook 64g

theHip

Kevin is awesome. Yay Instagram!

mscooley

I respect & follow your faith in RIM, Kevin. If selected. I'll even go easy on you. I'll take a Camry or an Impala SS or a Prius.

thehairlesscat

Do we get to pick the car? Now, I'm almost wondering if I want Instagram. I mean, cool photo app? Car? Tough choice.

Masahiro

Seeing as how I don't have an Instagram account, car please.

nquyen

Sure, I'll take a car, why not?

NerdBoss

Hey Kev you don't need to buy me one....I'd take the Range off your hands though ;-)

@NerdBoss514

Kevin Michaluk

Hell. I'm tempted to just give it to you. Still not fixed from when I blew the engine in early August. Hoping to get it back next week finally. One day I need to write into words that whole ordeal.. what a mess. :/

kupfernigk

Funny thing is, most English people who actually know about cars wouldn't touch anything from Land Rover. Our local farmers who actually need that sort of thing tend to buy Japanese.
At one time the Freelander scored second from bottom on the J P Power reliability survey.

barilro

Hey Instagram....Kevin is never wrong....we all trust him like we trust our own mother...

livejam

I'd love a car and I don't use instagram! So if you're wrong Kev then it works for me.

brkiko201

Definitely need instagram on BlackBerry 10

edyts

I think it will be there on BB10, but if its not why not get a free car out of it.

rcab

It will be wonderful to have BB 10 being first class all the way. If it does not happen then I would like the new Dodge Dart they are advertising on TV. I will not be greedy want want you to have to buy a super expensive one for me.

JWWDUKE

I could use a new car I guess.
I also want instagram on my new BB10touch!!!!

Hmmm, somethings gotta give........

#BB4EVER

playbooky

Or, in the mean time, you could get Schmidtstagram for BlackBerry: http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/130589/?lang=en

bmmcpeek

Awesome haha. I know its going to be out but it cant hurt lol.

kamranjkhan

kevin for president!

wait...he isnt running for president...wait...hes canadian.

DocDRM

Mr Z - we will be very happy to have Instagram on BB10 - but if not - CBK - my flavor is Ford F-250 4x4 CrewCab, King Ranch Edition w/ PowerStroke Turbo Diesel.

md03wx

Techvibes on twitter was quick to update their story once I sent them this article:

UPDATE: CrackBerry writer Kevin Michaluk insists VB is wrong on this one.

"No offense to VentureBeat, but whatever sources they have that are familiar with the matter, I have better sources that are even more familiar with this matter," he writes confidently. "I checked in with my contacts that all but gave formal confirmation that … you will see Instagram come to BlackBerry 10."

bounce007

Yes Instagram will be a much welcomed addition to the BlackBerry 10 family of applications. Everyone and their grandmothers uses Instagram, and we will love it too.... Btw, Kevin what kind of car would it be? Hope you're not joking and thinking of buying someone a toy car! lol

Andrew4life

No, you cannot just give "someone" a car. It can't be someone you know, it has to be as a contest or something on crackberry. Or it can be the equivalent in blackberry prizes.
Not that I doubt you Kevin, I just want more prizes :D.

pick1eberry

Yes Audi S5 in Berry Black if you don't mind....and Instagram on BB10 is way cool too!!

KEVIN YOU ROCK!!!!

madman0141

So we all get cars right?

Mhatham

Dear Instagram,
Please change the name of Instagram to something else (Intergram?) on the BB10 release date so I can tell Kevin Instagram did not come to BlackBerry.

Kevin, I will take a 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.

d1n_only

I think it will come to BB10 but if it doesn't you willing to buy a car over here in the UK?

shiftysdad

As much as I want to believe you, I want a car more.

00stryder

"Whatever sources they have that are familiar with the matter, I have better sources that are even more familiar with this matter."

LOL! Kevin just basically said, "No, you're wrong. Stop embarrassing yourself." I don't use Instagram myself but it would be great to have on BB10 to attract new users. If not, I've always wanted a QNX Porsche... ;)

lnichols

Although I doubt I'll use it because the built in photo editing in BB10 looks superb, I'm glad that it will be there for the people that think you need an app to deteriorate the quality of pics to share them on other sites. One more checkbox of needed apps.

hoanglove8x

A Porsche with QNX is great for me :D

stacym75

I'm easy. Brand new Volvo C70.

But I trust your sources.

Can I have a Porsche? Lol hope you're right I wanna get into Instagram!

17.michal

Kevin,

I love your offer...but you forgot to specify what car you will buy someone...an RC car, Real Car, Old Car? Anyway, the more developers/apps that go with bb 10, the better...for us, them and other people out here...

gallopiton

Mmmm... Instagram or a car.... Close one... About the "contest" the article says: don't believe everything you read... I want to believe!

gtpointer

Have never used instagram but am kinda interested to try it...must be a reason people are going so crazy over it, assuming it's just one of those things you don't get until you use it. Am wondering what kinda car is on offer...don't want a lemon :p

andypoi

Can't wait for BB10. Wouldn't mind a car either.

snoozininsomniac

indifferent about instagram....but count me in for car!

dannyd86

i believe you, but im throwing this comment in here for the chance on a car lol since you i know your a man of your word. Even without specifying what kind of car

Hypnoboy

No thanks on Instagram. I was born in the 70's. The photos looked awful back then. The only reason for an Instagram filter is if you're nostalgic for the 70's. Problem is, you JUST TOOK THAT PHOTO JUST NOW. BB10 is going to have a great camera, why muss it up by making it look like crap?

If you DO use instagram, do yourself a favor and be sure to save CLEAN versions of all of your photos. You're going to want them when this silly trend is over.

kupfernigk

What? Photos in the 70s did not look awful. There was very little technical progress in film or lenses between then and the effective end of film. We had Nikons, Leicas and Kodachrome. Find a National Geographic of the period. Instagram is like...letting a monkey loose on Photoshop.

kencon

Winning a car (a 2013 Passat TDI or better) would be almost as nice as Instagram on BB10.

It'll be there...but just in case...2013 Camaro ZL1...or your choice, I won't be picky ;)

rajdeep.malhi

As much as I would love to win a free car. I'm going to stand by BlackBerry10. I want it to have EVERYTHING for it to be successful! Can't wait for BB10 and Instagram!

PN009

Jennifer Van Grove.... you just got BURNED.....and the whole BB10 community called your bluff... LOOOOL..... you should get hitched to that moron Gellar at BGR.COM

Way to go Kevin.... now there's a man with balls of steel.

Folks @instagram, I know you guys can make it. BB10 is a developer friendly platform xD.

Otherwise, I wont mind having Kevin's ride or a new BRZ.

This is truly a win-win situation. Either I get Instagram on BlackBerry 10,

Or I get a car.

Kevin, you're a champ :)

bendiep1991

Woo I cant wait for the instagram team to add us BB users to the network!! Im not even gonna say I hope I win the car cause we're definitely getting instagram

swampking

It would be nice to see Instagram on BB10. but what happens if it doesn't show up and you buy the car to the lucky winner and then like year or 2 later after BB10 phones are released they release Instagram? Does the winner give back the car?

In all honestly, I hope other apps besides Instagram make it to BB10 like some Skype-like apps, improved Adobe reader and Docs2Go, etc.

mousii

I'll take instagram but as a backup, I love audis :)

Hello Blackberry World

Okay 2 things. Car must be purchased in Waterloo region home of BB. I will sell it back to you for half the value. Deal.

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

Sounds good to me. M5 from grand river bmw works for me

bibeberry

I want instagram for bb! The twitter integration has been nice, though. I guess the main point of it is the loves and comments on the pic. Molome just doesn't cut it with the userbase.

matthewmadness

Comment for le car. LOLOL.

PostMortem

Any developer that doesn't put their app on BB10 must be wealthy enough to drop out of development. I, like some others could care less about instagram, except to the extent that I want people to have the option to use whatever app they so chose, so yeah, bring on the instagram...and everything else. Heck, even the crapware.

PS- put the crapware in its own folder in "BlackBerry Store". In a folder named crapware.

dopalicious

It's not going to be a hot wheels, is it Kev if you're wrong?

Drawde

I believe you, but just in case, I would like a new car :)

Venom1971

I sure hope it comes to BB10 if not I want a Porsche 911 Turbo!

jrocke0w0

I'm game. Pick me. Could you throw in a $500.00 clock app while you're at it? :p

sk8er_tor

Car! But I doubt anyone will win.

meinarson

I will post but we know Kevin is right. He's more connected than connected!

morganplus8

I'm going to need a Porsche to go with my Porsche BB 10 phone. I'm sure you will understand!

Jimcmf

Crackberry is the only site that tells it as it is.
If Kevin is not sure of something, he will say that he is not sure.

All the other sites are just guessing, and are trying to make RIM look bad. It's time for RIM to step up and SUE for media misrepresentation.

Thanks Kevin for setting things straight !!! You will go far in life !

jhirizarry

Just in case, I don't ask much, an economy car will fit ok. A Fiat or a Yaris is ok. A one day or week hangout with Kevin will fit the bill too.
Sheers.

ekafara

Audi RS4 please and thank you(dark blue or black). I'm not a fan of instagram but other do so bring it on. I will probably get it just to post ridiculous pictures.

Rello

Well, just in case.....

Black BMW 5 series.

Don't have my hopes up at all though. I'm sure instagram will be there at launch

Kat0908

Facebook/Instagram, we want you on BlackBerry 10 so we can show off the camera on the new BB 10 devices!

Instagram on BB10 please. Love both, and would love a Nissan 370 coupe if it's not there.

theJeffLim

As much as I love Instagram, I also love cars :]

BB10BelieveIt

Subaru outback please! But Instagram on bb10 would be better!

bassicmama

Kevin, thanks for clarifying for us. I've really wanted to try Instagram, but I'm loyal to BlackBerry and can't *wait* to get my hands on a BB10.

And hey, I'm in BC, so, shipping a car to me (blue Mini Cooper!) would be cheaper than some of these other guys ;)

Just Neo

Personally I don't care about Instagram, but I know it is a popular app among others. I do love free cars however.

tinysalmon

Instagram, please be on BB 10 or else....

free car from Kevin.

Cheers

bigjman

I never used Istagram being that I'm a stuborn BlackBerry user (If BB doesn't offer it, I don't use it just like Netflix or Skype) but It's good it will be offered in BB10 for the people that actually use it & for the naysayers that don't think we are getting major apps.

Dapper37

I want Instagram on BB10, for all my friends here on CB that believe it's a must. I've never used it, so I don't feel the pull for it yet. Although I love taking pictures with my 9810. So I could learn to love it .)
+ I could use a new car!
Edit; If this app is needed to get BB10 in the hearts and minds of the American consumer's, Please!!!!!!!

q649

Likely a used beater car, lol

poppian

Kevin!...U sir is OUR leader...Glad u fix those bozo...Say any news about SKYPE!!!?...:D

blackmoe

I really hope that Instagram will be available so it will shut up the self appointed critics who use that as an example of of RIM's probable fail to impress upon debut.

redk

I don't really use instagram and I would just be happy if you paid off my loan on my current car.

Zirak

I would be foolish not to type a comment just on the off chance..
I have faith that it will come though.

I am going outvon a limb that RIM will come back and be a contender. I predict that in 4-5 yrs there will be 4 eco systems with approx equal share.

HNYK

Don't know if I'll use it or not but the presence of Instagram will have a huge impact on BB10's success.

chuckkdaduck

Woohooo free car!!!!!!!! Oh yeah and instagram lol

BBVegasGirl80

I was a heavy Instagram user before I left Android to return to BB. I would love Instagram for BB because I can use it to promote my business and for personal use as well.

However, the best thing after winning a BB 10 would be to WIN A CAR!!! I have never owned one and living in Las Vegas, I have tried to win cars several times and never had Lady Luck bless me with one yet. :-) Everyone keeps telling me I will win one sooner or later.

So, if I win, Kevin, you will have the honor of buying me my first car ever! :-D I don't care what kind it is, as long as it's good, economical, and runs well. In exchange, you get a free trip to Vegas on me.

What do you say? I hope I win - thank you! :-)

JIVE8900

When I saw the forum post, I then start looking around at those know rim hating sites (bgr et al) and I didn't see them pick it up. I think Kevin should have waited a little longer before posting this as I'd love to see some egg on their faces.

hunter_d

Hmmmmm car you say I will take a 2013 SRT8 Grand Cherokee. Oh and yeah to instagram on BB10

OniBerry

Instagram is great! Hope it's already available when BB10 releases.

bldshd

BB10 Needs Instagram & I need a car.. Seriously

bldshd

BB10 Needs Instagram & I need a car.. Seriously

D_shak

I've honestly never used instagram but the more popular apps we get the better. Kevin, I like your confidence.

crazylegshinch

Instagram is something I probably won't use. But it is one of those apps that we need to fill int he gaps so the naysayers can stop saying "Blackberry doesn't even have _______."

But a chance at a car...

Joanne17

Can I get both?? Instagram on BB10 and a new car...a toyota sedan or SvU of any model would be okay with me :)

my.usernamegoeshere

Any news about bb10 is good news.

Paunngaq

Hey Instagram would do well to make their way to the 10. If not hey Kevin, give me a clunker, I don't mind as long as it's a standard.

Cheers,

newerguy

Hmmmmm, Instagram or a car...
I'll take one of each please!
Thanks.

jelp2

A car would be sweet!

doxa sub750T

Look forward to BB10.

Cheers

And1Viper

I never expected to like Instagram so much but I'm hooked on it now on my work iPhone. I'd be heartbroken if it wasn't on BB10, but I wouldn't mind a new car ;)

BB_Bmore

Dear instagrambook or whatever your calling yourself these days....eh ehmm...although I'd love to see instagram use cascades to build the most beautiful instagram app ever, id much rather @CrackBerryKevin buy me a car so please use Cascades to (not) build us a BlackBerry10 app ;)
