Still sad you weren’t quick or lucky enough to score one of those limited edition Nextbit Robin copies in the actual snazzy color of a robin, Ember, aka red? Believe it or not, your laziness or misfortune might ultimately prove to have been a blessing in disguise, as long as you act now and take Amazon up on its sweetest lightning deal of today.
For the next 21 hours or so at the time of writing, i.e. until midnight PDT, the Mint and Midnight-coated “cloud-first” smartphones are available for their lowest prices yet (by a landslide), setting you back just $199 apiece.
That’s an incredible $200 or 50 percent off list, or 100 bucks lower than the manufacturer’s current direct ask. And yes, the Nextbit Robin units on sale at Amazon come with full US warranties, are brand new, untouched and unused, qualify for free shipping, also packing a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor and 3GB RAM.
The unique, minimalistic design and innovative 32GB internal + 100 gig cloud storage setup of course remain the top selling points of the first-gen Nextbit Robin, although we can’t help but wonder whether there might be a sequel on the horizon. After all, it’s been almost a year since the OG’s Kickstarter campaign launched with great fanfare.
