Good news coming out of SXSW today for all those eagerly awaiting Instagram's arrival on Android. The application has been shown off at the event, and so say the developers that "in some ways it's better than our iPhone app."
Instagram's Kevin Systrom took to the stage clutching a Galaxy Nexus running a prototype of the app which is currently being tested in private beta. But what about a release date? Systrom had something -- albeit not much -- to say on that subject. The team "hope to have it out to people really soon."
Really soon isn't really much to go on, but it is really coming. By the sound of it it'll be worth the wait too. Systrom also added that the app works great on larger screens, is really fast and offers sharing to Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook and other social networks. Definitely no watered down version then.
All that remains is to actually the see app running on an actual device. But after today, the wait appears to be nearing its end.
