A week after announcing pre-orders for a Verizon CDMA version of its Robin smartphone, Nextbit is now rolling out news that Sprint support will come included as well. This won't be a separate model. Instead, Nextbit is now calling the Verizon version the CDMA version, and it will work on either carrier.

All Robin Kickstarter backers will get to choose between the GSM model (AT&T and T-Mobile) or CDMA (Sprint and Verizon) in their surveys at the end of the campaign.

Nextbit Robin's Supported Bands:

GSM (AT&T and T-Mobile)

  • GSM 850/900/1800/1900
  • WCDMA 850/900/1700/1800/1900/2100
  • LTE Bands 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/17/20/28


CDMA (Verizon and Sprint)

  • CDMA 800/1900
  • GSM 850/900/1800/1900
  • WCDMA 1700/1800/1900/2100
  • LTE Bands 1/2/3/4/7/13/20/25/26/41

The Nextbit Robin has six days left to go before the campaign comes to a close. At this point, the first-time phone maker has amassed $1.2 million in pledges from over 3,000 backers. That's a fair amount of interest in a phone that aims to blur the line between local and cloud storage. If things go as planned, we'll get to see how well Nextbit delivers on that promise starting in January 2016.
