Nextbit Robin headed to Australia; may come to Verizon and Sprint in the US

Nextbit has offered an update on its Robin smartphone. The company has announced that the phone will be shipping to Australia when it launches next year. Nextbit also says that it is investigating a version of Robin that supports Verizon and Sprint in the US.

From Nextbit:

To the many Verizon and Sprint customers who've asked for Robin to support your networks, we hear you! We're investigating an alternate version of Robin with support for those two networks (and a few other spots around the globe we can't support with the current configuration). We'll know more in the next week or so.

Nextbit also offered a look at the Robin's camera app, along with the gallery, which is built to work seamlessly with the phone's smart storage system. The camera launches with the menu collapsed into a small pill at the bottom of the app, keeping the focus on the shutter key and viewfinder. Tapping the pill reveals options for your mode, and you can also change modes using the grid button on the pill without expanding the menu.

For more information on the Robin, you can check out the Kickstarter campaign, which ends October 1. Also be sure to check out our hands-on with the device.
