Nextbit Robin Kickstarter campaign surpasses $1,000,000 in funding
Nextbit has been making amazing cloud-based software for years, but they just recently introduced their first smartphone. We weren’t sure if the Next Bit Robin would be a hit or miss, but now it turns out their Kickstarter campaign is doing amazingly. Nextbit just doubled their goal, breaking past $1 million in funding in only half a month.
We suppose Nextbit was right when they told us the phone will “easily stand out”. It is very well-designed and unique, as well as being priced pretty affordably. At only $350-$400 for Kickstarter backers, this handset will definitely not disappoint.
The Nextbit Robin comes with a Snapdragon 808 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, 100 GB of cloud storage, a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front shooter, dual front-facing speakers and a 2680 mAh battery. While it may not have the latest and greatest components, these specs are enough to keep your phone snappy.
Considering these specs, the phone’s “cloud-first” nature and the unique design language, it’s no surprise to see the device really did stand out among its competitors. And reaching a million in funding is not the only significant milestone the company reached. These guys achieved their funding goal in less than half a day!
Of course, there are the stretch goals. All backers will now get a quick charger, thanks to that $1 million the company just surpassed. In addition, customers will get a Nextbit Robin T-shirt if the campaign reaches $1.25 million. Reaching $1.5 million will grant everyone 129 GB of cloud storage, as opposed to 100.
