Back in 2015, an ex-HTC executive and a couple ex-Googlers launched the Nextbit Robin on Kickstarter. The rebel in me had to have one so I was one of the first to order and then receive the unique midnight color Nextbit Robin.
The Nextbit Robin and accessories are no longer being sold through Nextbit channels, but it will fulfill warranties for six more months and promise software updates and security updates for another year, until February 2018.
Nextbit will continue to operate as an independent division within Razer so it is possible we could see some kind of gaming hardware in the future. I always thought we would see a company interested in advanced cloud storage management acquire Nextbit so I am a bit surprised by the gaming-focused Razer acquisition.
The good thing about a company like Razer purchasing Nextbit is that Nextbit will now have more resources to continue development of its technologies. Given the major price cuts on the Nextbit Robin over the past year, I was a bit concerned about the longterm viability of the company.
