@Nokia fans loving #2InstaWithLove, Nokia putting more ‘pressure’ on @instagram to bring it to Lumia
Instagram on WP/Nokia Lumia. It has been dragged out a lot, no? Will it, won’t it, when will it appear?
Nokia’s been rather too obvious now that Instagram is definitely coming to Nokia Lumia.

Whilst some see it as Nokia begging Instagram, others have said it’s likely that this is just to drum up hype for when Instagram eventually appears on the WP/Nokia Lumia platform. Why would they have so much fuss over something so uncertain?
A good timing as some have suggested is to coincide with the release of the EOS to really ramp up the whole Image focus of Nokia.
To reiterate, Instagram is not really just about the filters. It’s about the sharing of photos with an audience, it’s about connecting with others through photos, commenting on pictures, liking them, following other folks who share pictures you’re interested in. Some people share their work/portfolio, some share their life through photos.
And BTW, as nice as the multitude of filters are, who says you need to upload pictures that are edited? Nokia fans have been long known to produce some of if not the best raw, unedited mobile phone photography on the planet. You could do the same for Instagram.
