This 5.2-inch handset with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 on board and a custom OS focused on cloud services is now finally in stock and can be acquired for $299 USD (free shipping included).

Nextbit Robin spent a lot of time on Kickstarter and now it is finally available for shipping. Although the $199 USD deal is gone, this handset is a steal even for $299 USD, considering that its regular price will be $399 USD. Even more, the 5.2-inch handset is now available in three colors, including black.

For those who missed the Nextbit Robin news so far, here are the specs and features of this smartphone:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC

  • Operating system: Nextbit OS (unlocked bootloader)
  • Battery: 2,680 mAh with Quick Charge 2.0

This handset also features a fingerprint reader and dual front-facing speakers. It supports Android Pay, but unfortunately it only works with AT&T and T-Mobile in the US.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
