Back in September of last year, Nextbit officially introduced the Robin, an Android-powered smartphone that is “cloud-first.” With an eye-catching design and features that focus on storing and pulling things from the cloud, it earned plenty of attention. And after a successful stint on Kickster, it is about to start shipping. At least for the first 1,000 Kickstarter backers, anyway.
As revealed by the company’s chief designer, Scott Croyle, the Robin will begin shipping to the first 1,000 Kickstarter backers beginning February 16. However, while that’s certainly good news for those lucky 1,000, it is only of the GSM model to start. For anyone that backed a CDMA model, the wait continues.
There’s no word on when other backers will start to see their device shipped or when the CDMA models will get their first shipments.
