Instagram is coming to Android, everyone knows that. What we all don’t know is when exactly this will happen. Well it looks like the popular social photo sharing app will be available for Android user sooner than very soon.
Instagram has opened registration for Android users, saying that those who register will be among the first to receive what would most likely be a beta release of the application on their device. You can register here.
The registration is simple enough. All you need to do is enter your email address and you’re done. You will receive an email right after that saying that the people from Instagram will get in touch “soon” – we so hate that word.

With over 20 million users there’s no denying that Instagram is a very popular application but at the moment it is for iOS only. The developers have mentioned that an Android version is currently in the works but there’s no indication of when users can expect the popular app to make the leap. But if this screenshot captured from a promotional notification on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is anything to go by, Instagram for Android may only be days away from its much-awaited debut.
This is still far from definitive but it gives a glimmer of hope that Instagram could only be a few day away from being available in the Android Market. Would Instagram for Android be a big deal for you?
