If you want a Nextbit Robin and missed its Kickstarter fundraising campaign in 2015, you may want to check out its Amazon listing. The "cloud-first" Android phone that raised over $1.3 million on the crowdfunding platform, is going on sale starting at 3AM Eastern. It's currently listed for $399 on Amazon and on the company's own website, but from May 4th to 10th, you can get it for its early bird Kickstarter price of $299.
