One of the benefits of expanded usage of social networks is the ease through which customers and companies interact with one another. Relatively new ones — like OnePlus, for instance — owe much to their communities, and often offer them ways to be more involved with the company’s decisions.

In fact, another newcomer in the smartphone game — Nextbit — is announcing that it’s taking a similar approach…

Nextbit didn’t have an official presence at MWC this week. There was no press event, or new release, just a small meeting room at the back of one of the halls. Members of the press could go and meet the company’s chiefs and PR team to get their hands on the Robin, the manufacturer’s breakthrough product which utilizes the power of the cloud to keep storage space free on the device. I tried the Nextbit Robin for a few minutes, and fell in love, but I’m not entirely sure why…

Nextbit’s Robin is a new smartphone that’s primary goal is to eliminate the lack of smartphone storage. Robin uses the cloud and intelligently archives stuff you don’t use or need often, while backing it up to the cloud.

While we haven’t yet gotten our hands on the Nextbit Robin, it’s definitely a bit different than most of the other smartphone offerings we’ve seen this year. On top of its cloud-first features, the phone has also been popular for its design and price. Now, Nextbit has announced that the phone is supporting another carrier: Verizon. expand full story

Nextbit’s Robin passes $1 million in funding in just 2 weeks

Just a couple of weeks ago, we told you about the Nextbit Robin, a new smartphone that wants to help you become one with the cloud via an innovative new user experience. It appears that the phone is certainly popular, managing to pass $1 million in Kickstarter funding. And that amount was the campaign’s stretch goal, meaning that everyone that has ordered one will now be getting a quick charger as a bonus…

There are a lot of really intriguing offerings with the Robin, so it’s no wonder that it has managed to catch the eye of the most dedicated Android enthusiasts. For instance, with the Robin, you’ll find that the phone dynamically offloading apps and other content to make room if you’re in a crunch. Bringing them back is just a few taps away. The theory is that running out of storage space should be history with this phone.

On top of its fancy cloud features, the phone sports the popular Snapdragon 808 system-on-a-chip, a 5.2-inch IPS LCD 1080p display, and 3 GB RAM. You’ll find a 13-megapixel main shooter with phase detection autofocus, a dual tone flash, and a 5-megapixel sensor around front. All of this is powered by a hefty 2680 mAh battery. The phone has 32 GB of onboard storage, but the Robin also brings 100 GB of online storage.

If this sounds interesting, be sure to head over to Kickstarter and pledge $349 to grab one (although this is a Kickstarter campaign, so technically anything could happen). If nothing else, the phone seems to have Nexus 5 (2015)-level specs and a price tag that’s more than reasonable.

It’s called the Robin, and it packs a beautiful and simple design, great-but-sub-flagship specifications, and a cloud-first user experience… expand full story

While the number of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices that the average consumer owns is expected to rise over the next several years, it remains a rather frustrating and tedious task to pick up a task on one device where you left off on another. Apple has attempted to solve this problem with Handoff for iPhone, iPad and Mac, but Google has yet to deliver the same functionality on Android. expand full story
