After may already delaying the CDMA by a few months, Nextbit has decided to cancel the production of the CDMA Robin for Verizon and Sprint networks outright, Recode reports. The company is now refunding Kickstarter backers and offering them a 25% discount on the GSM option should they select to get one.

“We were not sufficiently doubtful of what we were told given all things we may already knew of our experience at previous companies,” CEO Tom Moss reportedly said in an email to backers. “We were too optimistic, too bullish, and as a outcome we have to deal with our largest fear, disappointing you, our supporters. This is bad for you, and this is bad for us.”

This is not your typical Kickstarter-backed campaign plagued with cash issues. In 2014 Nextbit attained $18 million in outside funding of a few primary names that include Accel Partners and GV. Nextbit in addition raised over $1.3 million in its Kickstarter campaign.

The boldly created smartphone offers a one-of-a-kind cloud storage space solution for users that “archives” less-used apps to the cloud when internal storage space space is running low.
