Nextbit opens up orders for its Robin smartphone & accessories, ships in two weeks

Nextbit Accessories

Nextbit’s Robin – the smartphone that comes with 100GB cloud storage for backing up your apps and photos – is now on sale, with the online store officially opening today.

Robin is available in Mint, an eye-catching light option with mint top and tail and a white body, and Midnight – a near-black shade all over for those of us who prefer darker coloured phones. The phone costs US $399 (about AU $560), and only the GSM version is currently available, and that’s the version you want for Australian carriers.

Nextbit’s also offering a number of accessories for Robin at some pretty reasonable prices. There’s three cases – Bruises, Bumps and Scratches, offering differing levels of protection ranging from US $15 to US $35, a USB wall charger that’s compatible with QuickCharge 2.0 at US $15 and Nextbit’s nicely styled flat USB-C cable for another US $15.

Shipping appears to be a flat US $35 no matter what’s in your cart. The phones ship in two weeks.

Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!

Shizen, that is one beautiful phone. Hope to get version two this time next year. Wouldn’t mind an amoled screen.

Love the aesthetic of the phone. Something very different to the so dull and drab look of phones these days.

Not really interested in their cloud storage stuff though.

I’m still undecided with this phone. I love the look and the fact it is so different, but the 6P is so very tempting 🙁
