The cloud-based Nextbit Robin is getting a new ember color variant as part of a limited run for the smartphone. Sold via, the phone is available for $299 and works with AT&T, T-Mobile, and other global GSM networks.


Additionally, Nextbit is enhancing the software to include video backups as part of its feature set. As it does with photos, the phone will move files off of the handset and into the cloud to access when wanted or needed. It’s not immediately clear when the video backups go live but it will start with beta testers first.

Beta testing is open to all Robin users. If you want to try out video support and aren’t already in the beta program, you can apply here to join. Once we are sure the update is rock solid, then we will roll it out to all Robin users.

Wrapping things up, Nextbit indicates that the August software update will include the most recent security patches from Google.
