Please download the application from the Play Store. It sounds like you have the .apk file from else where and are attempting installation this way; this can lead to incompatible version errors.

That is odd as you should only be able to find compatible versions of the applications through the Play Store as all incompatible applications should be filtered from view. You can try to run the update yourself and choose the repair option to reload the OS then download the application from the Play Store again.

Okay, so i had the same problem.
But i kind of worked around it, i did following.

1. I got into instagram.com, clicked the "play store" icon, signed in with the Gmail i got registered on my phone.
2. I pressed the install button and confirmed phone name.
3. I waited for Instagram to download to my phone (took a couple of minutes before it started downloading)
4. When it was done i created an account, tried to take a photo, uploaded it and.. Guess what, it worked =)

I hope this "fix" helps you out, and.. Sorry for my gramar if there's any major faults, english is not my native language.

EDIT: So what you want to do is to start the download thru their website.
