Instagram may finally arrive on Windows Phone devices, but there is a catch. A report from Chinese website WPDang suggests that the popular photo-sharing app will only be available as a Nokia (NOK) exclusive for its Windows Phone 8 smartphones. The report comes shortly after promotional material for the Nokia Lumia 610 that included an Instagram icon was spotted. The company is reportedly planning to offer Windows Phone users an extra filter to compensate them for the delayed release, and the app is expected to be “landing shortly” in the Windows Phone Marketplace.
