Razer will shut down cloud storage for the Robin on March 1st

The Nextbit Robin launched in 2016, and one of its unique features was 'Smart Storage.' Nextbit offered 100GB of cloud storage with every phone, where users could offload unused apps (along with the app data) to the cloud, and then easily restore them later. Support for the Robin has been winding down over the past few months, so it should come as no surprise that the cloud functionality will soon stop working.

Nextbit has ended customer support for the Robin

The Nextbit Robin has been popping up for next to nothing on eBay and Amazon lately, which isn't surprising as the company behind the funky little smartphone has been swallowed up by the glowing green maw of Razer. Nextbit has been winding down support for the Robin as it moves on as a Razer subsidiary. Today, support for the Robin is officially ending. Bummer.

[Re-review] Last year's Nextbit Robin is an entirely different (and better) phone at $130

How little can you spend on a phone in 2017 and still have a good experience? Companies like Lenovo-owned Motorola and BLU are pushing the envelope when it comes to the budget segment in the US. But, even a dated flagship can outcompete almost everything in the current entry-level market, and right now you can pick up one of 2016's most overlooked examples, the Nextbit Robin, for around $130 from Amazon. We think that deserves a second look.

Razer has shut down the Nextbit community site [Update]

It's hard for a startup to get into the competitive world of smartphones, but Nextbit made a go of things for a while. The Robin was a good phone, but the company was acquired by Razer early this year. Nothing much has changed since then, but now the Nextbit community site has been taken offline.

[Deal Alert] Get a Nextbit Robin for just $139.99 ($110 off) from eBay

Finding phones with flagship-level specs for mid-ranger prices isn't too difficult nowadays (ahem, OnePlus 3T), but it's less of a breeze to get a good deal on a mid- to high-end device for the price of a budget handset.

Nextbit has been acquired by Razer, promises Robin patches through February 2018

It's rare to see a new maker come out with a smartphone that's actually competent, but that's what Nextbit did with the Robin in 2015. It wasn't a perfect phone, but it was neat and stylish. There's been no word on what Nextbit's next move was after the Robin, and now we know why. Nextbit has been acquired by Razer. Yes, the maker of all those gamer-oriented keyboards and mice (and other things). The financials of the deal are not available at this time.
