Nextbit Robin Shipping Date Revealed

Following the announcement of the Nextbit Robin Pre-Orders going live two and half months ago, Nextbit is back with some not so great news about its upcoming "the smarter smartphone", including the shipping date of the Robin getting pushed back for a few weeks.

Although, the Nextbit Robin was first scheduled to be released early next month, the company has announced that the GSM models of the handset has been delayed due to last minute firmware improvements, as well as a key component not arriving in the quantities they needed. Unfortunately, there is no word yet on when the CDMA model will begin rolling out.

According to Nextbit "We know you want NextNow, and we’re disappointed we can’t get Robin to you any sooner. We want to remain open and straightforward with you about development, which is why we’re telling you as soon as we had enough information to set a new shipment date".

The Nextbit Robin GSM models will be released starting February 16 for early adopters, while the rest of the pre-orders will begin shipping by the end of February.
