As technology enthusiasts, we’re always looking for the next big thing. Sometimes it will arrive from out the blue to surprise us, while other times we’re able to get it on our radar early and follow its development. One that’s getting a lot of attention this week is an upstart called Nextbit, due both to the pedigree of its employees, and the $18 million in funding it was just able to put together. But there’s one big question hanging over Nextbit: just what does it do?

Here’s what we know: Nextbit was founded by Tom Moss, who has served two separate stints at Google, and the team he’s put together so far includes Android and iOS specialists, as well as people from companies with experience doing cloud storage and online retail. The sparse copy available on Nextbit’s website talks of lofty goals, “groundbreaking technology,” and tackling “crazy complex problems by architecting elegant solutions.”

We know it’s something mobile, and it sure sounds like it could be big, but the specifics seem to elude everyone so far. Moss talks about how the wireless space is still in its “Apple IIe days,” in a subtle dig on current players while setting some pretty high expectations for what Nextbit might deliver.

A whole new platform might be a little ambitious for a 14-person team (or maybe not), but what else could Nextbit be up to? We haven’t the foggiest just yet, but if this hype is any indication, we’ll be hearing about Nextbit again soon, and hopefully with some real details about what it’s working on. If you’ve got any theories, shout ’em out in the comments.
