Instagram is coming to Windows Phone 8, Vine swinging in too

Partying like it's 2012

What every photo taken with a 20MP camera needs is a cheesy vintage filter slapped over it.

So good news for phone photographers: at its Lumia 1520 launch event, Nokia announced that Instagram will launch on Windows Phone 8 "in the coming weeks".

Twitter's six-second video app Vine is also coming to Microsoft's OS in the next few days.

Update: Looks like Flipboard is on its way to Windows 8 too, given that it was demoed when Nokia announced the 2520 tablet.

More blips!

Step right this way for even more blip-flavoured goodness.
