One Plus have announced its ditched the silly invite system in order to buy the device,this means now the device can be bought globally without having to wait for an invite or getting one from a friend. This is good news for one of the best affordable handsets to hit the market over the last year.I was never a fan of the invite idea but it worked out well for them in the end and they produced a super device so hats off to them.
Starting today, the One will be available without an invite. Forever.
“That’s right. In our first big celebration of the One’s successful year, we are opening up sales globally for everyone, every day of the week. We have always wanted to put great products into the hands of more people. And, we now feel confident that we have matured enough to handle the increased complexity that comes along with opening up sales completely.
With the experiences we’ve gained with the One, we will be far more prepared to make the same transition with the OnePlus 2. Yes, the 2 will initially launch with invites. We’re committed to maintaining razor-thin margins in order to give as much value as possible back to our users, and this drastically increases our risk. The OnePlus 2 will bring the challenges that come along with a brand new product, and initially, our invite system will help us to manage that risk. It also helps us to be sure that every OnePlus 2 user gets the amazing experience that they deserve.”
