Instagram, the hugely popular iPhone photo app, has recorded 150 million photo uploads since it launched last October. Out of those 150 million photos uploaded, 120 million have had filters applied.

The iPhone only app has seven million users around the world who share a staggering 15 photos every second, or just under 1.3 million every day. The Instagram Team state that they’re “constantly amazed by the range of photos shared” and that “artists and celebrities have begun to give fans a unique look into their lives through photos, while brands like Burberry have started to realize the power of communicating with their followers through images”.

With such a popular app one wonders why Instagram haven’t yet released an Android or Windows Phone 7 version?
