Seems they've added sprint network capable device to the list. Nice to have options! More devices like this should become the norm!http://www.androidcentral.com/nexbit-robin-now-compatible-all-major-us-carriers-addition-sprint

It looks like a great combo.

 

But well I'll be impressed once they ship and reviews backup the claims.

 

That said the company has some great employees

Looking forward to the user thread from users who have trouble activating a phone they bought on Kickstarter on their Sprint account. 5 pages of SIM card skus with screenshots of their conversation with Sprint International.

If Moto/Sprint had trouble getting the Pure going on the first week, I can only imagine how a Kickstarter phone will go.

It's too bad that the Sprint variant does not include full CCA/RRPP compatibility with inclusion of LTE Bands 5 and 12. They do include them in the AT&T/Tmo variant. Bummer.

This was my thought when I saw the specs on the CDMA variant.

 

I'm wondering how the whole adding and removing apps/data from the cloud works in low coverage or no coverage areas.

 

This seems to require constant WiFi or high speed LTE to be fully functional.

Yeah, I'll let others be the guinea pig for that. ;)

Looking at the specs, it shows LTE bands 5 and 12 now.

 

Looks like the NextBit Robin will be coming to Sprint now. Anyone planning to get one? I don't see an ETA yet on the CDMA variant, but the GSM version seems to be available for purchase now.

I'm curious about one thing though. Even if the device has all the Sprint bands, would Sprint allow it on their network? I haven't seen any confirmation from Sprint.

Woops, looks like my thread was merged, didn't see this one. :-) 

 

Twospirits: The CDMA version does not appear to support bands 5 & 12 

 

As far as confirmation from Sprint, the CDMA version isn't out yet, so we probably won't hear anything until it's officially on the market.

Say goodbye to options.

 

Nextbit has cancelled the CDMA variant.

Interesting that they're waiting for so long for carrier coordination.  This is probably the same reason a lot of unlocked phones do not support CDMA.  If the BYOD policy for Sprint/Verizon were the same as T-Mobile/AT&T, this likely wouldn't happen (and with CSIM, it's entirely possible to replicate the same authentication/sim setup as its GSM partners.)
