The Nextbit Robin « cloud phone » is finally going to start shipping on February 16, after many months since its initial introduction. However, that date is only valid for the GSM version of the crowdfunded device. The situation is completely different for the CDMA model.
The people behind Nextbit have explained today that the CDMA Robin will probably start shipping in April, although an exact date can’t be given yet. More information should become available as we get closer to that month.
The delay of the CDMA model compared to the GSM one has to do with the fact that development of the former only started after Nextbit saw people’s response on Kickstarter. The team now admits they « got a little carried away in the excitement of the campaign » when they estimated they would be able to deliver the CDMA Robin in February too.
