Instagram 'definitely' coming to BlackBerry 10, say reports

BlackBerry 10 is pretty darn fancy, but without the support of external app developers, the platform is as good as dead. Thankfully, it seems Instagram is one app that will be available

The digital ink on our BlackBerry 10 launch event coverage has barely had time to dry, but smartphone fans are already seeking out which of the key third-party apps will be made available on the new BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 handsets.

One of those apps is Facebook-owned Instagram, which has been a phenomenon on the iPhone and Android handsets. Thankfully, for prospective BB10 converts, it appears that the filter-friendly photo-sharing app will be making an official appearance.

CrackBerry reports that Instagram will "definitely" become available for BB10 handsets, but was not drawn on a potential release date.

"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," wrote CrackBerry's Kevin Michaluk.

Some Instagram users would say the presence of the app on BB10 is as important as Facebook or Twitter. Announcements concerning high profile third-party app launches for BlackBerry 10 were thin on the ground during this week's launch event, so one feels more have to be forthcoming.

Check out our guide to the best BB10 apps to download first for a look at those that will be available from the off. And head to our Video hub for hands-ons with the BlackBerry Q10 and BlackBerry Z10
