4. Nextbit’s Robin smartphone priced at $399, up for pre-order in India Nextbit’s Robin smartphone is up for pre-order at a price of $399 (Rs 25,900 approx) on its Kickstarter page. The smartphone, which promises unlimited storage, can be shipped to India by paying an additional $70. But, it is the cloud in its DNA with Android as the base that makes it different from conventional android phones. There are so many Android smartphones, but not many can offer a serious differentiator. While custom UI and hardware specs have been the game for most manufacturers, it is still tough to figure out a clear distinguishing factor. This is where Robin comes in. Firstly, Robin is not a conventionally designed $400 Android smartphone. It is tall, square and striking in mint and midnight black colour options. Why Android? Because Nextbit’s team knows more about Android than anyone else. The company CEO Tom Moss served as Worldwide Head of Business Development for Android at Google until 2010 while its CTO Mike Chan overlooked software development right from Android 1.0 through 3.0 Honeycomb.
