Pricing of the Robin in India is not yet known, but I am expecting it to be priced between Rs27k and 29k. The Robin has a fresh design and it will definitely be a head turner. Also the cloud service can back up all your photos and unused application (APK files only) to a cloud storage and can be retrieved on demand. Check out the gallery for some hands-on images of the Nextbit Robin and choose your best color variant, as the Robin is soon going to be knocking your door.
