The OnePlus One was officially announced last week and Canadians will be able to purchase this CyanogenMod OS-based device in the imminent future, but you’ll have to first secure an invitation by smashing your current smartphone (which seems a bit extreme).
Apparently the desire for this spec-packed Android is in great demand. OnePlus notes on their forum that “we realized that far more people wanted the One than what we originally anticipated.” As a result they have been “frantically adjusting our production schedule” to make sure people will be able buy one as soon as possible. The dates that they are now communicating is:
- Ready now – 100 for phone smashers
- Mid to late May – Larger batch 16GB Silk White for the first batch of invites
- Early June – Larger batch 64GB Sandstone Black
- Later in June – Increased general availability, people who want it should be able to get an invite without much trouble in June
