Planning to purchase Nextbit’s Robin smartphone? You may be delighted to know that at Amazon, the device is being offered at only $299, but for a limited time only. Indeed, the ecommerce giant is listing the handset at a generously discounted price from May 4th until May 10th of this year. This means that if you decide to buy the Robin smartphone from Amazon within the next few days, you will be getting it at its early bird Kickstarter price, which is a hundred bucks cheaper compared to its normal price of $399.
For those not yet familiar with the story of Robin, know that Nextbit first introduced the device by way of a Kickstarter campaign in September of last year. Right before the closing date of the project, the campaign amazingly was able to raise more than $1.3 million in crowd funding. It appeared that many mobile users out there were quite interested in Robin, which is basically an Android powered smartphone that is specially designed to possess cloud storing abilities.
Even though Nextbit’s Robin smartphone comes with a cloud storage capacity of a hundred gigabytes, it actually features its own built in storage space, which allows it to make room for 32 gigabytes. On top of all that, the Robin handset is also gifted with the uncanny ability to ascertain which type of storage is actually needed, instead of determining that which is not.
By October of last year, the Nextbit Robin had been made available for preordering for $399, with color options of Mint or Midnight. At the onset of 2016, Nextbit then made an announcement that the device would begin shipping on February 16th of this year, especially for those early Kickstarter backers. For good measure, the phone maker also decided to open its online store a couple of days later on February 18th.
When the Robin smartphone first came out, Nextbit had originally planned to to provide support for the LTE bands of two major wireless carriers in the United States, namely AT&T and T-Mobile. But after learning that some subscribers from Verizon Wireless, as well as Sprint, were interested in purchasing the Robin handset, the company decided to start developing a variant of the smartphone that functions on CDMA mobile networks. However, in March of this year, Nextbit has since announced that the device will not be made available on Verizon Wireless or Sprint, after all.
