To get to that magical $199 price on the Nexus 7, Google and Asus had to make a lot of compromises including ditching a back camera on the tablet. Considering not many people use their tablet to click pictures, this definitely is a wise move. However, the lack of a back camera on the Nexus 7 also means that all apps on the Android Market that rely on a camera, including Instagram, give a “Device Not Supported” error.
Today, the Instagram developers have released a new update for the Android version of the app that adds support for the Nexus 7, along with the ability to share their images to Flickr. Nexus 7 users can now use the 1.3MP front-facing camera on their tablet to click pictures using Instagram.
