Nextbit has decided to shut down the cloud storage service for its Robin smartphone. The Smart Storage service was a major feature of the Nextbit operating system. It enabled the handset to expand its local storage seamlessly by syncing apps, photos, and other content to the cloud. Nextbit has confirmed today that it’s going to shut down the Smart Storage service on March 1st.

The closure of this service was an inevitability which is why it’s not surprising to see that it’s going to happen soon. Nextbit was acquired by Razer last year and it has already ended phone support for the Robin handset. All of the social media channels were also shut down a couple of months back.

The Nextbit team has been involved with Razer’s smartphone project ever since. The company emailed Robin smartphone users today to inform them that it’s going to shut down this service come March 1st. They will be automatically signed out of Smart Storage on that day.

Those who want to secure their data before that happens have been advised to either sync it to their device to use the company’s download tool at It’s going to offer this feature until April 1st after which all of the data and personal data information collected will be “purged.”
