Instagram — a popular iPhone-based photo-sharing service (and app) — is finally heading to Android.

CNET reports that Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom revealed that the company has two people working on developing an Android version of the app right now. There are no details as to how long it'll be before Android users are actually able to download and use Instagram yet, mind you.

Amusingly enough, Systrom remarked that the reason Instagram launched on the iPhone first is because that happened to be the mobile device of choice for the company's founders. Thanks to the superior camera performance of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, this decision — no matter how strangely it was made — turned out to be a very good one and quickly earned Instagram a large userbase.
