Nextbit Robin confirmed with Sprint support, too

Nextbit recently announced that it plans to ship a Verizon version of the Nextbit Robin and, following that announcement, it said it heard from a lot of Sprint customers that they, too, wanted a CDMA option. Nextbit on Wednesday officially announced that it will indeed cater to Sprint customers with a Sprint SKU of the smartphone.

Nextbit said that “clearly, operators are excited about this, not just our Kickstarter backers,” which suggests that perhaps Sprint had a roll in getting this to the table. “They are letting us ship an open phone and want to be part of a cloud-based future,” a spokesperson told TechnoBuffalo in an email announcing the news.

The phone will be priced at $349 and backers will have the option to choose it at the end of the Kickstarter campaign, when GSM and CDMA models will be available for selection. Wondering about those bands? Here’s a look, as provided by Nextbit:

GSM (AT&T and T-Mobile)

  • GSM 850/900/1800/1900
