Nextbit Robin CDMA support expands to Sprint

By Stephen Schenck September 23, 2015, 6:21 pm

Does the Nextbit Robin have what it takes to become the next OnePlus One, giving shoppers a real alternative to smartphones coming from the larger manufacturing behemoths? We should start finding out early next year, when the Robin first becomes available to supporters who backed Nextbit’s Kickstarter efforts. Initially announced for GSM-based networks only, last week we saw reservations get started for a CDMA-friendly variant of the Robin. Problem was, it only boasted compatibility with Verizon’s network, leaving loyal Sprint fans behind. In a new announcement today, Nextbit rights that oversight, announcing full Robin compatibility with Sprint.


What was once the Robin Verizon edition is now simply the CDMA Robin. While last week’s $300 launch offer for the then-Verizon model is long gone, you’ll still be able to pick up the phone for Sprint at the regular $350 price.

Beyond announcing Sprint compatibility, Nextbit also shares a little about the in-box pack-ins the Robin will ship with, including SIM tool, quick charger, and charging cable, all pictured below.
