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?

I'd love an RC car, maybe as much as CrackBerry!

quicksilverss05

I miss the days when I was younger and had a rc truck. I had a taxxis stampede electric truck with a supped up motor. Lots of fun and I would love to get my nephew into the Hobby

jafrul

A car is a car is a car is a car.... No qnx in it? Fine with me.... But will there be a remote app where I can control the car using my upcoming Z10? It'll be sweeter if it come with the app.
Well, Kevin, thanks in advance for giving the car...
better an RC than a Hotwheels. Right?

bbicons

@CrackBerryKevin - I'm a fellow die hard Team Associated fan dating back to the RC10 CE! Thanks for keeping your word on the contest and I hope to win! I am also hoping to see instagram on BB10. #BB10BELIEVE

jordandrews90

Sure why not, looks like a lot of fun :p

togardergrosse

Is this for worldwide CB member?
Coz I would love to get one for my nephew.
He is still in infancy, so probably I will playing with it (if I win) instead of him.
Nevertheless, it's his after he is older!

(What a cheap uncle am I)

cray.mock

@Kevin - True to your word. Very cool prize.

Paul Carter15

So if I win, people will read my comment here... So, if it's going to be seen by thousands of people, naturally that makes me want to say something wildly inappropriate. So here goes, I'll tell my favorite joke of all time (I'll only tell the beginning of it though!) and you (the jealous viewer) use Google to finish it!

What's the different between an Orange and a Baby?

WhutChaDoin

The only R/C car I ever had was a Futaba FX10, so this would be a huge step up!

Halifax Guy

I used to have remote controlled cars and trucks waaaaaay back when. It would be great to have another one to remember my youth.
