NextbitRobin15For the most part, a lot of phone makers tend to make their devices for GSM networks. However the folks at Nextbit decided that the Nextbit Robin should be available to all users and created CDMA versions that would be compatible with Sprint and Verizon’s networks. Unfortunately if you were looking forward to the CDMA version of the phone, it has been delayed.

In an update posted on their Kickstarter page (via 9to5Google), Nextbit said, “When we estimated we would deliver CDMA Robin in February, we were being optimistic. Now that we’ve gone through development and are working out the testing schedule, we think April is more realistic.”

As to when in April, the company did not mention but they did state that they will be keeping customers informed. “We don’t know exactly when in April as there are still a number of factors outside our control. We will keep you up to date, as we get more and more information.” That being said, they will be re-opening pre-orders again soon.

A post on Twitter revealed that the company is planning on launching their new ecommerce website on the 16th of February, so customers who missed out on ordering their phones can look forward to February to start placing their orders.
