Instagram v5.1 Dropping Today With A More Android-Friendly UI [Update: It's Live]

Google has long offered Nexus devices in black, with only occasional white options. The Nexus 5 is the first one that has been available in both colors from the start. Perhaps because of this, rumors of different colors for the Nexus 5 have been circulating for a while now, but a new cache of photos is the best evidence yet that a red version of Google's flagship is on the way.
