Nextbit Surpasses Goal – Closes Kickstarter Campaign

Posted by at 1:36 pm on October 2, 2015

RobinNextbit’s Robin smartphone won the financial support of more than 3,600 people who invested $1.36 million in the Kickstarter campaign.

Nextbit said it received enough interest in the Robin to move forward with manufacturing. It has closed the Kickstarter campaign and is now working to bring the device to market, expected during the first quarter of 2016. According to Nextbit, most of the investment came from the U.S., Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, the U.K., and Singapore.

The Robin is an Android phone that uses the cloud to manage on-board storage availability. It can seamlessly offload and reload content — including applications — when needed to free up space.

It was designed by former HTC employees and costs $399. The phone will be available in GSM and CDMA variants, supporting the networks of AT&T and T-Mobile, and Sprint and Verizon.
