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.
