This company is known for having given life to Nextbit Robin, a smartphone with a hybrid storage thanks to its connection with a free cloud service. While Nextbit continues to operate as an independent division within Razer, the latter expert in gaming peripheral, it will focus on ” design and unique mobile experiences ,” so it is likely that in the future, the company will focus on the launch of its own smartphone and tablet when Robin is no longer available for purchase.
