Nextbit Robin possibly headed to Verizon and Sprint
Nextbit’s Robin smartphone may still be in the crowdfunding stages, but the team behind the device is working hard to make sure everyone who wants the device can get one. In a recent update on its Kickstarter campaign, Nextbit has announced expanded availability for the device when it ships next year.
For starters, Nextbit has announced it’s bringing the Robin to Australia. Thanks to a few helpful customers who were knowledgable about the local networks, Nextbit was able to quickly add Australia to the list of supported countries.
Also, the company is working hard to bring the Robin to Verizon and Sprint. Nextbit says it’s investigating an alternate version of the device that will be compatible with these two CDMA networks. More information will be given about Verizon and Sprint compatibility in the next week or so. We’ll be sure to update you when we learn more.
We got the chance to go hands-on with an early version of the device at CTIA 2015 in Las Vegas a few days ago, and we must say, this is one heck of a smartphone so far. It features a unique design coupled with some interesting cloud-based software features that Nextbit hopes will differentiate it from the rest.
