Razer is widely known for the PCs, laptops and gaming related peripherals that the company makes. I have to say that the company does make some pretty cool products and is known for premium gaming products but now it seems that the company might be getting into the smartphone industry soon. Razer is going to be acquiring Nextbit and the company would not make such a big step without a good reason behind it. The following is the statement from Nextbit:

“I’m thrilled to announce that we’re joining the Razer family! They’re rebels like us, they speak from the heart, and they share our need to push boundaries. Nextbit will operate as an independent division inside Razer, focused on unique mobile design and experiences. To put it simply, we’ll be doing exactly what we’ve been doing all along, only bigger and better.
If you’re curious what this means for Robin, don’t worry. While we have stopped selling Robin and all accessories through our official channels, we are still dedicated to supporting all of you. We will continue to fulfill warranties for 6 more months. And as promised, we will continue to provide software updates and security patches through February 2018.”
Users will still be getting software support and updates but it seems that it is possible that Razer will be getting a slice of the mobile phone market. Nextbit has not been known for quality but now that it will be a part of Razer things could change for the better. We might see some Razer-inspired designs that might have some gamer related features as well.
We will see how the acquisition goes and we will let you know what the company has planned for the future. Till then we will have to wait and see let us know what you think about this.
