There is unlimited amounts of data storage available in the cloud so why rely on a constant squeeze on your local storage? Nextbit hopes to change that with what they're calling a "cloud-first" smartphone. The Robin is an Android-powered phone that is constantly watching your storage needs and adjusts those needs in real time.

Say you have an app or photos you have used or looked at in awhile, Robin will delete those to give you more storage and everything is backed up so in the event of deletion you will have all your data and can restore it whenever you want. 

When it comes to specs, Robin will feature a Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, 100GB of cloud storage, a 5.2" 1080p IPS display, 13MP camera, fingerprint sensor, and it's even completely unlocked for you to install your own ROMs like CyanogenMod.

From $299, for more info on Robin check out their Kickstarter
