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?

Nice car! I'm down for winning!

iririr

A car or a bb z10...either way I want to win....

scunliffe

Not quite a Bentley... but I'd still like one ;-) though I'll admit my excitement is more for BB10 than the car ;-)

toshstone

Sounds good, hopefully it comes out though!

Chilao

Any toy for a 15 year old boy is also good for a 55 year old man!

ShaggyM8

I love CrackBerry for doing all these awesome giveaways! And on that note, pick ME!

cpsquires

Awesome idea! And happy to hear that Instagram is coming!

ltlowe

OK, that would be fun.

BriniaSona

When I get it, I'll [b] share my tablet and phone and tape the phone to the car and drive it around the house bridged. :D

Just gotta win a free crackberry phone first.

CDM76

This is another awesome contest. Love CB !!

BB10 - Time to FSU

Mister-E

This would be fun to chase the raccoon's away with.

rajdeep.malhi

I love crackberry contest!! Regardless of what it is!

Jaralle

What an honourable man you are!! I'd probably forego winning the Z10 comp if I could win this for my son. He would be STOKED!

BBVegasGirl80

I will give it a shot. I wasn't sure if I should, but I have never owned a car, so what have I got to lose? If I win, fantastic, I will be forever grateful to Kevin as long as live. If I don't, I'm still getting a Z10 and I already won an awesome prize from CB during the holidays. :-)

LeCanard

I don't know that I'll be able to fit car seats in this thing....but good enought for me. I'll strap a Gopro to the top of this thing and we'll have some fun. Thanks Kevin.

BA Baracus

Great idea Kevin! Who doesn't like RC cars??!

netwerx1

I will give it a custom CrackBerry/BlackBerry paint job, complete with Sparks!

jcastilloalonso

Wow Kevin, that is some neat contest. Specially as you point out that Instagram is indeed going to be available for BlackBerry10 which means you should just say "I was right". Seems like an awesome RC truck! Hope the winner values it and does not leave it get dust without use.

powerforward13

Holy cow! My 13 year old would be so jealous! And no, i wouldn't just give it to him to be a good Dad, that sucker would be mine! ;)

NotGoodIMO

Awesome! I would love to drive one.

fizi

I'm game. Remember my Scorcher 6x6 from back in the day. Heck I might still have it.

BB-04

Sweet a RC toys are the best. Thanks Kevin!!!

itsyaboy

I don't want to win one because I do not have the time to use it and that would be an enormous waste of such a beautiful gift. Instead, I want to compliment Kevin on his awesomeness. This is a master stroke haha!

kittysheroars

My boyfriend would love an R/C Car! I'll put BlackBerry 10 Decals on the body as the sponsor :)

andrewmcwhirter

I love RC! It's been years since I played with one!

Jusfro

This is awesome!!! I love this site!!!!

drjay868

Well, since I won't have a BB10 phone to play with until some time in March, I can definitely pass some time with this!

IN!!!

MoPiou

Sure ! I've never onwed one. ^^

J'espère gagner :D

Sinon tant mieux si Instagram sort avant !

I hope to win :D

Well it's better if Instagram is out before !

caitken

Woohoooo go team crackberry, even though I'd beat you in a race if I won!

cinder0008

Sweet! I would give it to my son, but I would probably play with it more!

wolf_clan

cdncam

Thanks again CB!

Xavior

RC RC RC!!!! LETS GO NITRO!

brunolovesbrit

Is that a screenshot taken from another platform or you're actually testing Instagram? :)

Can't wait to get a BB z10 and Instagram on it :D

Loves BB10

Its no QNX car, but its still somewhat blackberry related!

TomJasper

Any chance the body can be air brushed with Crackberry & Blackberry logos and of course Kevin's signature.

parkinfly

Good news about Instagram even though I've never used it!

flip68

Oh sweet! I can use my iphone as a ramp and crash barrier for it!! Nice! :)

Marvic18

You are an honourable man kevin and I would gladly accept this car!

fantass

I rather prefer a z10 than a car, anyway i take it!

prophoto1

love ...love...love integral!!! love to have that rc car! SOOOO BOSS!

bengalt9

Are you sure you wanna give this one to me ...LOL!!!! I'm in Kevin

Stef71

Gave away my Team Associated RC10 "Gold Pan" years ago. This RC car, from the in '80s, revolutionized the RC car world when it came out. Wish I'd never parted with it as it is now a classic. This TA truck could certainly help ease the pain! :) Thanks Kevin.

jcat0111

LoL!!! I'll take it!

elmit22

count me in, anything for a prize and name in lights

klangst

I love RC10! I used to have one as a kid! Things have changed a lot since then. Great contest!

SFWriter

Great prize..... But if I’m the lucky one, any chance I could trade it in for a Z10? :) Pleaseeeeee? Don't make me beg dude.... I'm too old to beg :)

playpen007

Facebook bought Instagram and Facebook is not competing with BlackBerry so there is no reason for Instagram not coming to BlackBerry Z​10. You have to believe it!

Awesome stuff Kevin! It's gestures like these that make being part of the CrackBerry family a lot of fun (who doesn't like free stuff?) and brings more excitement to the future of BB10! Cheers!

MayhemMaybe

I had a feeling the car would be something like this. Awesome to find one with 10 in the name. This would help me not sleep until Blackberry 10 in the US in march!

trigger1074

My brothers dog loves chasing his rc car, but the fun stops in winter. Now, if I had a truck, the fun can go on all year long :p

Mommabear02

Oh how my son loves RC trucks and cars!

theHip

Haha - Kevin, you are awesome.

j.srakovcic

I knew there was a reason to believe that all lawyers were sneaky trickesters..... Just kidding. This would work great since some folks down the street from me just got an RC car for christmas and need a good whoopin to keep them grounded.

SaNtAu

Hello, i love RC, here in my country is to expensive, i will glad to win it. :)

FSeverino

I got a great idea...

how about you keep the car (which most likely has great sentimental value) and just give me a free Z10 case with a sticker of a car on it?

I think that is a pretty sweet idea :)

kano2864212

What a great giveaway! I love rc cars!

cajohnston

One Christmas I got paid by RadioShack to drive RC cars around the shopping mall, I would love to have one of my very own :)

curtismacd31

Kidding...

scalemaster34

Can you control it with the Z10?

gyubok

YES! I love RC cars!

lcgoldman

Whilest I sit and wait for BB10 to come to US of A, my son would love to play with that car until he can start playing all those cool games on the BB10. I think I might have to get TWO phones... and he's only nine!

ubermanx

That would indeed be a car worth owning

DarwinMejia

Hook me up bro!!!! Lol

BenoitC

I'll take one for sure! :D

Paunngaq

My wife and I got my 4 year old a Toys R Us rc car for christmas so this would be a great step up from that.

Cheers,

Nex_Gen

Just as good as the Rover.

AtomicFrost

After watching a few videos online, I have to say that this is one car I would love winning. :)

It looks like it would be a ton of fun to race it around. Kevin should post a few video's of his racing skills when he gets his. ;)

Good luck everybody!

SlcCorrado

Haha, jeeez... Way to "lawyer" that one Kev ;) I don't use instagram since I don't really like to make my pics look old and worn (kidding), but Ill take an Rc car if you're just gonna give it away, haha. Good work buddy.

geek1212

Seems like a good plan indeed! :)

groller

Hehe, awesome... go bb10 and go Kevin!

A little therapy never hurts!

IIJBII

Count me in! Most of my cars/tucks were Traxxas so I'd love this!

addyetude

Kevin although I don't know the value of the RC item you're willing to part with, what I do personally know is that NO dollar amount can be placed on the sentimental value it holds...

I commend yo on being a man of your (selective) words and parting with a cherished item...kudos to you!

CZullo

Let's go racing. Monster truck style

dhberry

A new car, amazing. Hope I win. ;-)
