Nextbit is adding a Verizon option to its wildly successful Kickstarter campaign for the Robin smartphone today. The "cloud-first" Android device, which comes with 100GB of cloud storage for free, already raised over a million on the crowdfunding website despite only being compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile. However, the company apparently received "tons of fan mail" asking about a Verizon version, so the team went back to work to put one together for its potential buyers. Since there are only 13 days to go in the campaign, Nextbit is holding a flash sale on September 18th, starting at 10AM Pacific/1PM Eastern.

The first 300 buyers from the US will be able to get the Verizon-compatible Robin for $299, after which the price will go up to $349. Folks who already backed the project, however, don't have to shell out more cash if they don't want to. So long as they pledged enough money to get a unit, they can just note in the backer survey, which will be sent out after the campaign ends, that they want the variant that works with Big Red. Same goes for those who miss the flash sale: they simply have to choose an appropriate reward tier and tell Nextbit they prefer the Verizon model.
