Techie Tuesday: ‘Cloud First’ Nextbit Robin Smartphone !


This Techie Tuesday, get ready for the ‘Cloud First’ Nextbit Robin Smartphone !

Heads up, early mobile tech adopters: The “cloud-first” Nextbit Robin is now available for pre-order.

The handset, which has already raised more than $1.3 million on Kickstarter and $101,000 on Backerkit, is slated to begin shipping in February 2016 to those who pre-order it now, a month after it’s expected to arrive for the first wave of Kickstarter backers. Early Kickstarter supporters and some lucky Verizon customers were able to nab the handset for $299 recently, but those who missed out will now have to pay $399.

Buyers can opt for the CDMA version, which works on Verizon and Sprint, or the GSM model for AT&T and T-Mobile networks. The handset comes in mint or a dark blue color called midnight.

What’s so special about the Robin? Running Android and powered by a Snapdragon 808 processor, the device doesn’t just connect to the cloud, it offloads unused phone content there. If you haven’t used an app in a while, for example, it will be dumped into Nextbit’s cloud storage and show up as a grayed-out icon, freeing up space on your device.  read more
