Nextbit, the makers of the cloud-based smartphone Robin, has announced that it has reduced the price of its handset globally. The Nextbit Robin will now be available at $299 (approximately Rs. 20,000) regardless of the location.

In a community post, the company announced the permanent price cut and added that the price includes the shipping charges as well. However, it pointed, "As long as we ship there, you'll get Robin at a great price." The company 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."

To refresh on the specifications, the Robin smartphone sports pretty decent hardware at its price, and addresses the limited storage issue in smartphones with a cloud-based storage solution. One of the unique features of the handset is it can automatically back up photos and other data that haven't been used recently to the cloud to free up space on the device.
