Nextbit Robin Gets Limited-Time $100 Price Cut


If you've been eyeing the cloud-based Nextbit Robin smartphone, the device will be available on Amazon for $299 for a limited time, the company said Wednesday.

The smartphone will once again be $399 after May 10.

The move is designed to commemorate the Robin's launch on Amazon. Previously, the device, which is easily among the more innovative gadgets in the smartphone industry, was only available on the Nextbit website.

The Robin made a splash last year with its interesting take on smartphone storage. The Android-based smartphone uses the cloud to store data; if you don't use an app for awhile, the phone will offload it to the cloud, where it remains—without taking up space on your phone—until you need it.

From a specs perspective, the Robin is no slouch, offering a 5.2-inch display, 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a Qualcomm Snapdron 808 processor. It also comes with a USB Type-C connector.

In February, PCMag's Sascha Segan gave it a "good" rating in his review. "The Nextbit Robin is a beautiful unlocked Android phone with an innovative approach to cloud storage, but you need to believe in the company's vision and be willing to pay a premium for design," he wrote.

So if the Nextbit was too pricey for you before, now's the time to check it out.
