As promised, Nextbit will be offering a CDMA variant of the Robin, though it will only work on Verizon. Previously, Nextbit said it was looking into offering both a Sprint and Verizon variant, though it appears as if the Sprint version will not be available. Beginning at 10 a.m. PT on Friday, September 18, the first 300 people who back the CDMA Nextbit Robin will get it for just $299, with the price going to $349 after that.
In addition, starting at 11 a.m. PT Thursday September 17, Nextbit will be holding a color contest on Kickstarter. From Nextbit:
We will ask backers to propose colors for a Kickstarter-only device and will collect the responses and put the 5 most popular choices out for a formal vote to decide which new color will be offered on both Kickstarter and on Twitter using hashtags. We cannot wait to see what people come up with!
The Nextbit Robin has already surpassed $1 million in funding, and the Kickstarter is set to close at the end of September. Will you be backing the Robin? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
