    Sorry. I think I may have posted in the wrong forum. I was referring to What's app being native. My bad.

    Really it would be more like 910 million of a pool of a billion smatphone users don't care with only 90 million caring right? Sorry couldn't resist.

    It's kinda like saying one doesn't have access to Facebook, but is able to get Twitter. For some people, Facebook's network is invaluable.

    One thing I'm sure of... Instagram is paying this thing perfectly.
    So the social network is just bigger on Instagram?

    Don't know if it's bigger. Highly doubt it. But it's different.

    I can keep my contacts on Instagram completely separate from FB and Twitter. Example.....no one on CB is on my FB. Some are on Twitter. Two are on Instagram. I don't want my kids pics on Twitter or Instagram, and I don't want contacts from Instagram with access to pics of my kids. So I keep different aspects of my life separate from different groups.

    What kills me is this derailment started by the "tools not toys" comment, a comment from a person who is not a blackberry fan, starts stuff all time here, and obviously meant to be sarcastic jab at people now wanting apps on Z10. So a troll caused the users/defenders of other platforms to derail a thread. Please look at who is posting the comment and their posting history before flinging poo people because their are plenty of hit and run posters here on CrackBerry that just want to muck stuff up.

    Interesting assessment.
    So we revisit the derailment?

    No, it's more like not buying a car because it doesn't have calipers. One of the things I need a car to do is stop when I mash on the brake pedal.

    Please. People want their apps and they want them now. I have never used Instagram so I have no interest in it. The True Believer of BlackBerry is strong within you.

    Why else would Thorsten (not Thor) Heins have showed off all of those consumer apps. Both are toys and both are business tools.
    Sorry I missed this. I agree with you. Both can be used for work and play. It's just that one is more focused on work and the other on play. Nothing wrong with that.

    No official word from BB on how the NOC is used. BB10 goes through Active Sync now just like all other email.

    However, QNX is supposed to be the answer to BB's security now. Only time will tell.

    THIS!!!! IF they don't get this, I don't they get it.

    Iphones only appeal to a teeny boppers and unemployable people. It's been proven over and over that a BB is for profescenals and adults! FACT:

    It's exactly like Aquaman and the sheeps who like spiderman. Anyone knows that Aquaman IS a superhero, who also just happens to be a man. Spiderman is a man, who PRETENDS to be a superhero, but only a &@! doesn't see right through it. Aquaman is for adults, and for intellgient people.

    SO stop trolling itools! You need apps because you're too stoopid to use a browser. Superheros use browsers period.

    PS> SO iphone crashed the space shuttle....figures.. THat's what they get for playing games with lives, and all because some astronaught wanted to play angry birds with his kid, or instagram some space particles or whatnot. Give it up qbnkelt, it's already been proven iphone is a toy, so you're just being stubborn.

    Don't know that it is bigger either, to be honest. I suspect so; but some folks seem to think the draw is the filters. It really isn't. It's the network, IMHO.

    To understand why folks want it, one has to figure out why MAJOR corporations are using it to connect with the public. That alone is reason enough for BBRY to get it

    Fixed that for you. I am also assuming you meant professionals, which by your post, you don't seem to be.

    Is there really any time that you just need to share a poor quality cell phone pic with everyone you know the second you take it.

How about next time you are going to take that pic on your cell phone, don't and just enjoy the experance. And really, how often do you go back and look at all those pictures that you just had to take? Now I know on here you're going to say that you do it all the time, but at least be honest with yourself.
    Interesting. No one "needs" to share pics via Instagram. I guess they just like to. I see no harm in it if you have friends and family that wish to see said pictures. Not all cell phone pictures are poor quality. I've been shown pics from a friend on Instagram(I don't use it myself), and the quality was good. Does the world need another social platform? I'm not sure. Maybe, maybe not. But, I see it as something that's completely optional, and if I don't like or want to to use it, I don't have to. No bother to me. But, if someone in college or where ever can come up with an ideal/program, and get millions of people to like it, and they become rich from their hard work, good for them. Especially if they can improve upon another social platform. Did Tony Stark really need so many suits when he already a bunch that worked fine? Some people enjoy taking pictures. Some enjoy taking a ton of them. Some enjoy sharing those pictures on their cellphones to Facebook, Twitter, and, yes, even Instagram. Who am I or anyone else to say to them "Don't do it". And, even if they only looked at their Instagram page only once a month, I don't see why that's even an issue for anyone but them.

    I personally LOVE seeing people trying to improve on what we have and looking for ways to make it better(ala Tony Stark). Even if it's not for me, at least it's a step moving forward.
    If your tired of someone's comments, why not just put them on Ignore

    OK so anyway Instagram will be on BB10 and will be native and released in March! So people that want it and use it have one less barrier to migrate to or back to BlackBerry from Android or iPhone.

    I think the pic that Kevin posted in response to the article was in fact a native version of Instagram. However, he probably overstepped his bounds by posting that pic, and insinuating what he did, hence the article he posted later in an attempt to backtrack.

    As we just saw with the whats app situation, not even RIM can comment on when partner developers will release apps for BB10. As Alec Saunders said it is not their place to do so. The developer is the only one that can confirm. I think the Instagram holdup is due to MS's 1.6% ownership in FB. They are probably holding it back until the Win 8 version is ready to go.

    Bottom line is, who cares? If instagram is that important to you, then don't come to BB. It's that simple. All we have on here is a couple of people who tell the rest of us that "we just don't get it". Just stick to your toys, and let the grownups get the work done.

    We understand you are on a crusade against Instagram. Fortunately reasonable people who understand what BB needs to compete against upcoming monster phones don't agree with you.
