Nextbit has announced a global price cut for its cloud based smartphone – Nextbit Robin – which will now be available at $299 (Rs 20,197 approx). Nextbit Robin was unveiled globally last year at $399, but was available at $299 in India and the US until now.
Nextbit, in a community post said, “We didn’t think it was fair that only fans in India and the US got to purchase Robin at a great price. So we’re lowering the price of Robin on Nextbit.com to $299 for everyone.” Nextbit said the new permanent price cut includes shipping charges as well. “As long as we ship there, you’ll get Robin at a great price,” the community page said.
