Nextbit Robin Kickstarter Has Reached $500K In Less Than A Day. Announces $1 Million Goal
When Nextbit announced their Android smartphone Robin with cloud centric features and decided to use Kickstarter, we are not sure about its success. However, it seems many people are interested in in the Nextbit Robin and its cloud features.
The Kickstarter campaign has already hit the modest $500,000 goal in less than a day, so the company is doing a $1 million stretch goal.
We were nervous setting such a big goal, but you all helped us meet it in less than a day… in less than half a day! We weren't expecting this kind of response. Really, we weren't. Your overwhelming support shows we're on to something. That you believe there's a better way to do things. That you're ready for Next Now.
Nextbit launched their Kickstarter campaign on September 1, and they have already reached over $700K and are close to their $1 million goal. If Nextbit reaches their $1 million goal, they promised that everyone will get a quick charger with their order.
When we hit $1 million everyone gets a quick charger with their order. We've already had a ton of great feedback and questions about charging. As our community grows with more backers, together we can make sure everyone gets the best, fastest recharge Robin can offer.
The Nextbit Robin has a USB Type-C port, and neither of the Type-C devices you can get right now have Quick Charge 2.0 included (the ZenPad and OnePlus 2). There will not always be a compatible cable around, so being able to juice it up quickly before you head out would be nice.
The Robin Kickstarter runs for another 28 days, so we are sure the $1 million barrier will be broken. Maybe there will be another stretch goal at that point. The phone is expected to ship to backers in February 2016.
