Nokia: Instagram is on the way

by Ernest Doku

Finnish mobile phone manufacturer Nokia has confirmed the popular photo-sharing app is coming to Windows Phone 8, according to a recent report.

Nokia has done this by posting a message to Facebook, replying to a customer’s enquiry if Instagram is coming to the Windows Phone 8-powered Nokia Lumia 920.

The response from the Swedish Nokia Facebook page was “Instagram is on the way but can't give an exact date right now".

This has been covered by Microsoft mobile OS news title Windows Phone Central, which has included a screenshot of the transaction.

That was a good idea it appears, as Nokia has subsequently deleted the post - possibly indicating an error in leaking the unauthorised info.

Nokia Sweden has previously posted a similar confirmation to Twitter.

In March, it tweeted "@WilliamSparf Dock to instagram is under development, but you can still floja your friends' feeds with #instacam :)"

This isn’t the first time we have heard of Instagram coming to the Windows Phone 8 platform.

The Verge noted Microsoft was testing this very app on its WP8 OS, in March this year.

That was in an article about the Nokia #2InstaWithLove app, which applies a type of Polaroid filter to images and comes close to being an Instagram app.
