You guys might have heard of a Kickstarter project for a smartphone by Nextbit called the Robin. The project was launched last month and was a resounding success, raising over $1.3 million before coming to a close. Now the good news is that if you wanted to get your hands on the phone but missed the chance to back it, pre-orders for the device are now live.
The phone is priced at $399 and you can pre-order it via its website. Users can choose between GSM and CDMA versions meaning that in terms of compatibility, you will be able to use it across the four major carriers that includes Verizon and Sprint. There will also be two color options available – Mint and Midnight that customers can choose from.
That being said for those who are hearing about the Nextbit Robin for the first time, this is a handset whose storage is pretty much based in the cloud. It will feature 32GB of onboard storage along with 100GB in the cloud. It will be able to learn your usage patterns, which in turn will allow the phone to determine what space is needed and what isn’t.
For example apps that you don’t use or don’t use often might be sent to the cloud and are kept there for when you need it, and apps that you use frequently are stored on your phone. This helps ensure that you will always have memory for when you need it. Other specs include a Snapdragon 808 chipset with 3GB of RAM, a 5.2-inch FHD display, a 13MP rear-facing camera, NFC, Bluetooth, and a 2,680mAh battery.
