If the android port works, then that's fine. Most people won't know ow the difference anyways as long as it works. It doesn't have to have cascades ui. If you see the Facebook and twitter apps as leaked, they are consistent with how those apps look on other platforms. Pretty sure same thing will happen with instagram.
As I noted in other comments, RIM should convinced the flipboards of the world to have at least an android port available...

"Sure, it's got Instagram but it's just a port and not running natively... what? RIM couldn't get anyone to build proper apps? Just buy an iPhone or Android device, at least then you'll be getting the real goods and a better app experience"
Mark my words. It hurts to say that, because I know as a whole the products will be great but you know as well as I do, people want RIM to fail and will focus on any negative point they can and highlight it to the max. Apps is almost certainly going to be one of those points unless RIM has been doing some heavy behind the scenes work.

I used Instagram on on my GS3 when I had it. I enjoyed the ease of use in tweaking pictures with the different filters. The ease of use is what sets it apart from so many other apps I've tried, on BBOS and WP. Glad it will be available for BB10! (Y)

I personally never liked angry birds. It's all the crazy but it's an uninteresting game to me.

Thanks for your response. You speak of UX being streamlined and more efficient with the inclusion of apps and this is what RIM is trying to accomplish w/o the in/out paradigm. Invocation and other things which I am unfamiliar with will help us to get that experience and when there isn't an app present then we have a best in class browser.
We all want those apps to be there including RIM, the question is will they?

Instagram for BB10
My bet is on an Android port too. An Android port that works is better than nothing.
Though it would serve fine as a quick fix, I would really love a native app instead.
Perhaps its meant as a quick fix only. If there is a wide even adoption rate for BB10, eventually a native will come. Or at least I hope so.

Apps is really the only thing you're worried about? You don't think reviewers will tear into RIM if the hardware is a little lacking or the X10 looks an awful lot like "every other BlackBerry ever made"? You're right that they'll focus on ANY negative no matter if it's big or small.

Regardless, the point is that the option is not even available on the BB. Been looking for the DC Circulator real time app on the BB for eons.
Some things are really not that difficult to comprehend....
