Instagram coming to Windows Phone. Kinda. Maybe.

File this one under intriguing folks. It seems Instagram, in one way or another, has finally made its way to Windows Phone. And this is the real deal, meaning users can upload their photos right to the social network.

At least that seems to be the gist of this post on WPCentral. Daniel Rubino, their editor in chief, posted this image earlier, while also providing a link to an Instagram page where you can see there really is an image on the social network. Right now the app isn't live but Rubino said more would be revealed today, possibly alluding to a launch date for the application. This may turn out to be a fake so don't get too excited just yet.

It's interesting to note that this doesn't appear to be the official first party app. In fact the app in question is named Instagraph and, as you can see in the image above, the photo filters are powered by Aviary. That's the same start-up that Twitter uses for its photo filters.

So how is this possible? It's very likely that Instagraph is a really good app and that the folks at Instagram were finally convinced to allow a third party to access their upload API. Of course Nokia and possibly Microsoft could have had something to do with this. In either way Windows Phone users will definitely be happy if this turns out to be true.
