Nokia exec asserts Windows Phone Instagram on its way


Nokia has totally been wearing its emotions on its sleeve when it comes to hopes for a Windows Phone port of Instagram. Back in early March, its efforts really began in earnest, launching its own #2InstaWithLove app, apparently in an effort to demonstrate interest from the platform’s users. Since then, we’ve heard rumors about when the app might land, only to see those fizzle, but that’s only encouraged us to branch out and experiment with some unofficial solutions, discovering some solid efforts along the way (and one we just looked at). We still don’t have a hard date, but some recent statements from an executive VP make it crystal clear: official Windows Phone Instagram is happening.

Nokia’s Chris Weber has been visiting Thailand, working to increase his company’s market share while wrestling control over shoppers away from Samsung. As part of some statements about products Nokia intends to launch there throughout the rest of the year, he confirmed that an Instagram client is finally on its way.

We wish we had a little more to tell you, but Weber’s comment on the matter was extremely concise, and all we know is that the app is in the works. As for an ETA – well, you’ve waited this long already – keep the faith, and we’ll update you when we hear anything.
