Today, Nextbit has announced that their new crowdfunded smartphone, Nextbit Robin is compatible with Sprint. With this announcement their smartphone now supports all four major U.S telecom Carrier – AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon.

This allows all U.S based Kickstarter backers to choose between GSM and CDMA variant of their phone on any of the four carriers.

Nextbit Robin is a cloud first smartphone, with a seamlessly expanding storage. Robin tries to solve the problem of limited storage in smartphones in a brilliantly simple way. Robin will monitor your apps and files and intelligently move them to the cloud to make room for new data. The Robin also learns as you use it and will only move items that you rarely use to the cloud, and it only does when you need more storage.
