KickStarter, the revolutionary crowdsourcing platform, has helped the Robin smartphone achieve over $800,000 in funding in just a few days. Although Robin’s goal was just $500,000, the cloud based smartphone easily exceeded its funding amount by showing off its new flashy cloud based storage features. So what exactly is Android’s new Robin smartphone and how can it help you with your day-to-day?
The Robin smartphone has a 5.2in touchscreen HD LCD built using Gorilla Glass 4 protection. The Robin smartphone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with 3GBs of RAM inside the phone. The camera of the Robin smartphone has 13 megapixel lens, which will provide robust features such as autofocus and dual tone flash. There is also a 5 megapixel camera on the other side of the phone, allowing users to record media using either camera located on the phone. Although the Robin phone has 32GBs of storage onboard, what differentiates the Robin smartphone is that it uses cloud storage as a primary source of storage.
Let’s take a real world example of how the Robin smartphone can provide value and functionality over competitors. If you were out filming an event and you realize that your space is getting low, you must first delete another piece of media and continue to recording the event so that the video has enough space to save onto the internal memory of your phone.
Once complete, you must them migrate that video to the cloud in order to share it with your friends and family. The Robin smartphone skips many of these steps, allowing you the ability to record video straight to the cloud without the device storing the data on the phone locally first. This means that you wouldn’t have to stop recording, delete a video and continue re-recording. The Robin smartphone detects when you run out of space and automatically begins using cloud storage space to store your media.
