@InstagramWP is fake says Nokia

It comes as little surprise that the @InstagramWP account is fake.  The main thing validating the account, which had more than 1000 twitter followers, and whose only tweet was “Good things comes to those who wait” was that the Official Nokia twitter account was following the account.

Now Nokia’s Media Relations head Doug Dawson has explained why – apparently this was due to an auto-follow rule on Tweetsender.

Soon after following the account Nokia unfollowed it, and the @InstagramWP account now appears to be deleted.

For those hoping for Instagram on Windows Phone, the best bet seems to be an app like Itsdagram, which is now pretty close to release and appears to offer very close to the full Instagram experience.
