Instagram still coming to BlackBerry 10 (but I'm going to give somebody a car anyway)

Instagram still coming to BlackBerry 10

Leave a comment to this post for your chance to win a Team Associated RC10T Radio Controlled Truck!

I'm still getting tweets and emails about whether or not Instagram is coming to BlackBerry 10 following this week's launch event, so here's a little post to update CrackBerry Nation on where things are at (though I did make mention of it already in our BlackBerry Z10 Review).

While no formal announcement was made this week about Instagram coming to BlackBerry, we did get word that BlackBerry is engaged in the process with Instagram right now and that Instagram will definitely be coming to BlackBerry 10. No date yet, but it will be there. Let's hope sooner than later of course.

Now let's revisit that promise I made back on October 12th that if Instagram doesn't come to BlackBerry 10 that I would buy somebody a car. I'll be honest. The lawyer in me was pretty careful about the wording of that article. I didn't say when Instagram would come to BlackBerry 10 -- just that it would come -- and I never stipulated what kind of car I would buy. So based on all that, I'm in the clear on that contest. 

THAT SAID... this is CrackBerry and I love to give away stuff to our readers, so I'm going to hook a lucky reader up with a "car" that actually has a lot of meaning to me.

The vehicle? A Team Associated RC10T4.1. Back in my pre-driver's license days, I was a teenager hardcore into radio controlled cars. Seriously, I'd make my dad drive me around the country to take me to events so I could race. The truck I raced? The original Team Associated RC10T (in the photo above, bottom right corner with body removed. I had the original RC10 too of course, but always liked the Stadium trucks). I was as hardcore about Team Associated back then as I am about BlackBerry today. And with a 10 in the name, I think it's a very fitting vehicle choice in honor of BlackBerry 10.

If you're down with winning this awesome prize (and believe me - it's awesome - I'm going to pick up one up for myself so I can race my nephew this summer), all you need to do is a leave a comment to this post to enter for your chance to win. As for when we'll announce the winner, I'm thinking we'll need to give BlackBerry a bit of time still to pull things together here. Let's say if they announce Instagram for BlackBerry before the end of March, we'll announce the winner to this contest then. And if it hasn't been announced by April 1st, we'll pick the winner and give out the prize then. And.... we'll run another contest that goes until Instagram actually is released.

Sound like a plan?

thedark722

but definitely +1 love me some RC!!!

NamelessStar

lol same here but damn betting on this coming right at launch Kevin :P

ghundiraj

*crosses fingers and hopes to win*

jgrzadka

I was hoping the give away would be a QNX car, like a Bentley ;)

Rootbrian

My RC hovercraft blew out and I could use one of those to race down the bike paths. :)
Or through the shopping mall or the walmart parking lot!

thedark722

First?...hopefully...win? fingers crossed.

pmccartney

I already have a nice car and I like toys!
Win Win situation!

holman_00

Sir Holman
i would TAKE that RC off your hands good sir

dhutt

Kevin....I never doubted you for a minute.

The_Adventist

Ok. Thanks. Let's start the new year right with a win.

md03wx

This takes me back to my high school days - I loved racing these things. I had a team losi

Kevin Michaluk

Nice. I was a Team Losi hater for a while, but like em now. But always was a Team Associated guy.  

Driftdreams

Now, Kevin says A car... doesn't specify what car... what year... what make lol... This will be a pretty funny outcome for a lucky fan

ps4rh

This would be nice. Nicer if it could be controlled from a BlackBerry. My son would enjoy playing with this with me.

If I win it, I'll take an Instagram photo of it. :)

HugoSawyer

I have a 2 year old son, and I'll give it to him as soon as he turns 10... because until then, I'll be playing with it myself!!! Bring it on!

keypeck

Perfect for my 3-year old!!!

nicke20

how cool, a truck for the z10 im going to win :)

BermudasBest

My four boys would LOVE THIS!

mxmadman

This is a waaaay better idea than giving away a real car... no taxes, no paperwork, just balls to the wall fun!!!!

P-TRB

Gotta love that CrackBerry generosity!

EchuOkan1

I can use a distration for the wait until the Z10 is available in the US.

folgrz

Would be a cool addition to my HPI rs4 3

:-D

Good luck everyone

sg701

A man of your "word"...very clever play...and funny to boot!

bonercotton

That is a great prize! Count me in!

TTBGF

Ready for my first ever Crackberry Win!!!

Kornmatix

sounds like a plan to me. count me in!

bensonjunior

Oooh!! Shiny R/C car. I can't wait.

racecar5150

although I don't really care for instagram, the fact that it is still coming AND someone gets a free car is a win win!

Stump3r

Being an old RC heli guy that left the hobby I'd love to move into stadium trucks. I've drooled over them in the hobby stores but never did bite. This could be the kick in the butt I need, my youngest son loves RC and this would be perfect for the two of us.

LazyEvul

It's not a full-sized car, but it'll do!

pigdude

Could really use one of these to race against my son's!

NobleNintyNine

If I win this car I will drag a couple iPhones and Androids around with it, and record it on my Z10!

rjmsouthard

I used to have an RC car when I was a kid. I need to get one for my son.

Bondar

I can"t wait, this would be so cool!!

Abrante

Count me in. My current car isn't working out too well. A remote control car will keep me entertained :)

battery

Awesome Idea. I've been looking at one of these before. Couldn't justify the cost. Good luck everyone!

Marc Croes

You are awesome Crackberry!!!!

Chriz

Last Days i have searched for a good RC Car. Nice Contest. :-)

tytanfamily

RC car's are much more fun that normal cars!

neteng1000

I was heavily into RC cars as a kid. I would love to win it so that I can get my son involved in it.

berrygirl0506

Fun contest! What a great idea!

galleon

Hey I'm getting bored of flying my RC helicopter, I'll gladly play with one of those for a while!

poolman5

We have an old RC truck here at home and it's lonely. :-(

rally5464

Count me in. Always wanted one of these toys. Once I had my fun with it I will pass it on to my nephew to enjoy.

adjdudley21

Give me a Car.. A Truck.. PReeasshhhh

AngryEdmontonian

Kev, If that's your actual RC your giving away from your childhood and not a repurchased one, if I win I'll mail it back to you just cause I like your style.
If it's a "new" one I'll race ya to Saskatoon

I Bleed Black & Berry

dboy54

Good stuff. and hey a car is a car right.

djenkins6

Would love to give this a spin. Looking forward to the z10 app to remote control it!

aphelion_blue

This is a very cool prize!

Markus_1988

This could explain the delayed release of Blackberry Z10 in the USA, they want to make sure its ready and has some solid apps before Americans can rip it shreds.

jeffreytoronto

This sounds like more fun than instragram itself.... I might even let the kids have a turn at it...

bizzyqu

Nothing beats a truck in ANY form, please please pick me!

mrpenaflor

I would love to own a truck even if it's just an RC. :D

lkveggie

Would be fun to drive around campus! ;)

Roscopcoletrain

My son would love to rip around one of these :D

kritikal

playbookster

dietertong

I'd love to have a car! An RC car! So much fun!

red72

That's hysterical. Hey...a car is a car right?. Would be nice for my older son. Thanks Kevin

badtothebone

I want my kids to be as cool as you Kevin and grow up racing those cars too! We are in!

moe80

I'll need to get a 2nd one if I win, for my lil 17 mth old

framos242

Idea... Paint the CB logo on it.

Cap_172R

bounce007

Hey why not! I've always wanted one of these things when I was a child, but somehow Santa never ever had it. Love the giveaways!

hammer40

Please! I have a 10 year old that might think I'm cool.

Sarvey

Haha. That's very nice of you. Also, glad to hear about instagram.

bergeronjc

pick me! my daughter will LOVE the car.

Johnny Clifton

Thank you for the article and for the chance to enter this contest. I am looking forward to trading in my iPhone 4s for a new Blackberry 10. I am a previous Blackberry user.

mister160

umbrau44

That would be very nice to have!

If my kids have even half as much fun as I did with my R/C car when I was younger, it would fantastic.

kae77

salter0151

Would love to win this !

AwesomeRob

An RC car sounds cool, Instagram (although I don't use it) sounds cooler. Close that app gap.

raptorfan

good news about instagram - should help with the 'no apps' doom and gloom.
cool prize too...

feldmen01

Obviously the winner has to be me, since I started the forum post that brought this all up :)

kpbutton

Well done, way to keep the fun coming with contests and rewards.
Cheers!

ScwB

Sure. But shouldn't the list of contestants go from the original post?

root2

Wicked promo!
Takes me back to the good ol' RC days (RC10 for me).

Steelers

RC car is cool I to use to race them but not anything big just with the kids from the block.

Michopo

I've never gotten a chance to drive the good ones though, it would be really awesome to give this one a go with my young brother! And I thought you were actually going to give out a real car, this is 10 times better!! Yes I'm a nerdy...

mohawk apple

Sweet, I've been racing these cars for a few years now.
Love my REVO
:-)

jlawson3944

My son and I love racing RC cars. He had a nirto powered car that does not work any longer so if I won the car we could start racing again.

pysik

Nice!!! RC Car FTW

I_B_Blazed

count me i love rc cars!!!!

gonzo uk

Never let it be said that Kevin is not a man of his word.

jedwards73

Would be great for chasing the geese out of my backyard. *evil grin*

And I guess if they are nice, I'd let the kids drive it also.

Michopo

Mhatham

Great Contest Kevin.

You should throw in a Z10 wth it.

ffejrobins30

I'll take it! It'll go awesome with my mod RC10B4 Buggy!

Professional_Tickle_Fighter

Riley600

I'm in! I like remote controlled things :D

sleekskyline120

I always wanted to get into RC cars when I was younger but my parents always thought it was too expensive :(

mechanoid

My guess - instagram will be released in time for US availability. And excellent can I win the car??

porkchopian

As always best contests are on CrackBerry!

chi-town311

sounds good to me. I used to race these back in the day too. Way more hard core about BlackBerry than I was about RC cars, but they are definitely fun.

subieguy07

I never ever win anything. But it would be fun! Film it with the new Z10

apache1680

It would be great if it came in CrackBerry orange!

omegajimes

I'll take one of those. Getting back into RC has always been in the back of my mind.

syn-ack

Woot that would be a ton of awesome fun.

Nammer403

you are never too old for RC cars

7thedon7

Did anyone notice tha the photo is actually an Instagram pic on theZ10?
Ohhh, by the way, count me in as well.
