Nextbit Sold To Razer, Will Be Independent Mobile Division
Nextbit, the company behind the cloud-based Robin smartphone, has now joined Razer. This is not huge surprise, we had a feeling Nextbit will be sold..
Financial details have not been made public by Nextbit. CEO Tom Moss shared a short info on Nextbit’s forum stating, “Nextbit will operate as an independent division inside Razer, focused on unique mobile design and experiences.” Essentially, Nextbit will remain the same, but will be, “bigger and better.”
The sale of Robin is done deal, but Nextbit stresses that this does not mean the end of support for current owners of the Robin. Nextbit’s community manager said that the company will be, “continuing the support we promised everyone since the beginning of our Kickstarter campaign.” Specifically, “We will continue to fulfill warranties for 6 more months. And as promised, we will continue to provide software updates and security patches through February 2018.
Nextbit getting acquired probably shouldn’t surprise anyone, but Razer being the buyer is unespected for sure. Nextbit does have some worth value, not just a well-designed shell with mid-range specs inside.
