While the large smartphone ecosystem does have native apps for majors like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, Instagram is reaching that level of mainstream and the news, if accurate, is a blow to the fledgling platform.
Say the sources: "There will be no [native] Instagram for BB10 for now. Frankly, I'm not sure there will ever be."
For BB users, the company is simply working on porting its Android version, but that will not offer the same experience as an app built on BlackBerry's "Cascades" SDK.
When asked, BlackBerry had little to say. "We have a strong partnership and are actively engaged around Instagram support for BB10 but we do not have an availability date at this point."
