    Razer phone could be happening then?!

    Just a heads up Razer if you want to do well In Android keep the Nextbit developers on board (your current android development team isn't great) and keep in mind the open development of android by releasing sources and you'll be flying.

    Welcome NextBit!
    Interested to see what will be going on with this, If a Razer phone or a next generation Edge will come out.
    Maybe even a reboot of the Switchblade UI?

    If razer drops a phone Im chucking this s7 soooo fast.

    I mean a chroma phone would be bad would it, just have the edges light up for alerts, and also pulse to music.

    Does this mean chroma phone? And the ability to use wireless Razer products with phones?

    Well, that's what Min said about the announcement on his twitter:
    "Just because one of the most talented Android teams in the world has joined us doesn't mean we're making a phone. Maybe an Android toaster?"

    No matter what they're eventually going for, it's great to expand and actually making use of that. Razer and Nextbit won't disappoint us!

    I know I can read an article or visit an external website, but can anyone who knows summarize in one sentence what nextbit does? I've gleaned from the posts above that they do Android related work, but what exactly?

    A big welcome to Razer Insider nonetheless!!

    This is something thats been requested by as far as i know the Minority in razer fandom for quite some time. I'm excited to get behind this and give it my seal of approval. And its a company i've looked into in the past. Very exciting time for Razer! Power to the gamer.
