Last week we reported that the cloud-based smartphone the Nextbit Robin would be supporting Verizon’s network. For those wondering why Sprint was not included in the list, especially since Sprint is also a CDMA network, you’re in luck because the phone’s creators have just announced support for Sprint as well.
According to Nextbit, “There were far more Robin true believers using Sprint than we knew about. After last week’s announcement, so many people spoke up asking for Sprint support. We listened. As of today, what used to be the Verizon version will now support Sprint too, so we’re renaming it the CDMA version.”
Basically what this means is that if you were to help crowdfund the phone, you can choose either the GSM model which will play nicely with AT&T or T-Mobile networks, or most international users, or the CDMA version which is basically designed for both Verizon and Sprint’s networks.
Pricing remains the same at $349 so if you’d like to learn more or pledge your donation, head on over to its Kickstarter page for the details. The Nextbit Robin has 7 days left of funding and to date has managed to raise more than $1.2 million, surpassing its original goal of $500,000.
