Windows Phone now have over 150,000 apps at the Windows Phone Store, but even with so many apps, this OS has failed to gain popularity. In fact, Android and iOS still feel safe that their crown would not be taken by the Windows Phone OS in the near future. At the moment, neither developers or consumers seem interested enough in Windows Phone.
But does it mean that Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) have failed, or does it mean that OEM’s that manufacture the phone have failed remains a question. Well, whatever the case might be, sometimes one single app can help to attract consumers and Instagram is one such an app.

Rumors for quite some time have been surfacing that Instagram for Windows Phone might be on the way. Often it’s said that the app would be released during the month of May. Amidst all these rumors, Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V)’s Swedish Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) page has made a comment to a consumer inquiry about the Instagram app for Lumia 920.
The comment says that the Instagram “is on the way” but the company cannot give an exact date of its launch at this time. Since then, the conversation has then been deleted from Facebook, which really seems strange. Thus, in short, we can say that there’s no official confirmation from Instagram, Microsoft, Facebook or anybody else with regards to Instagram for Windows Phone.
In the past, we’ve seen that Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) pages sometimes say things that aren’t completely accurate, plus this conversation has been deleted which means there’s no proof of any conversation at this moment, apart from this screenshot.
Many sources have revealed that there’s really a Windows Phone Instagram app coming up, but when and to which devices seems to be a question which cannot be answered at this moment.
