    Guess we can strike one big name off the list for launch...

    Facebook has no plans to release Instagram for BlackBerry 10 (exclusive) | VentureBeat


    *EDIT* Looks like the good ol' CrackBerry team has debunked this rumor! Instagram Lives in BB10 (or I get a car!!!!)

    Is it possible that the filters RIM are including in their camera application might just be good enough? It's possible. Nonetheless, I'm cynical to believe that a "Venture Beat Exclusive" is credible enough.

    VentureBeat is credible in my opinion. It doesn't matter how good Rim's new camera software is, Instagram has over 100 Million user and that's huge.

    "a person familiar to the matter" is not a source.

    Continue as is

    So that's the instruction from somewhere high above within FB skunk works? Anyone remember the uproar when it launched on Android?
    Until BB10 proves itself most of these guys will be expressing disinterest.

    Obviously they're not going to release the name of their source... that wouldn't be very nice and not a good way of keeping friends...

    Since Instagram runs on Android, the android emulator in BB10 will also suffice for not having a native Instagram app.

    IF the news is true.

    IF it works properly on the Android Emulator... as of now, I believe it doesn't? Anyone?

    If Facebook had no plans to release an application for Instagram why would Venture Beat need to rely on a source and not a direct quote from the company?

    This was the one app that I was hoping for at launch. It's not about the filters, it's all about the social aspects, it seems everyone i know is on IG.

    FaceBook hasn't said anything about it up to this point... That's where the source comes in.

    As far as I'm concerned this is garbage. How long did it take Instagram to get to Android? Did the platform die without Instagram there? Stop clicking the link bait, for the love of god!

    They act as if this a confirmed report, but as I said above, "a person familiar to the matter" is not an official source, does not confirm anything.

    This is a website looking for clicks based off a rumor

    Oh, please. If BB10 has enough users and demand, Instagram will have an official app.
    This is just like the Netflix saga.

    blah blah blah.. I'll believe it when I see it.. Until BB10 comes out, we're all speculating on what is or isn't going to be there... Unless there's a letter from facebook stating a fact.. Source stating or speculating does nothing but sell news papers and get page views..

    Can't say I blame them with RIMs past and current track record.

    They are moving on too.

    I do understand that people find it interesting to read all the rumors and gossip - but Why make Big headlines out of thin air?

    Financial analytic s - what do they really know? The worlds finances are bouncing all around ... "analytic s" are working for their own agenda - some to lower the share values - others to increase - all for their own and their clients benefits. Does it make anything "true" just because someone say it out loud? No it does not..

    @crackberrykevin Let us all show them in the end - that they were wrong - let us compile a list with names of All doomsday profets out there - and in 1 year after BB10 launches - let's go through that list and see what really happened. And put out the names of individuals and companies who screams out the loudest about how bad RIM and BB10 is/was/will be... Perhaps their customers and clients will think twice next time they get advice from them...

    So I guess this boils down to who's source is more credible

    Here's and idea for RIM, how about give people a list of the who's who that WILL be developing for BB10...unless they just want to string people along until BB10 drops and then make promises about "Coming Soon" for those that aren't on board yet.
