OnePlus made a great Android phone, the One, bringing flagship-level specs with a nearly unheard of price point: $299 for the 16GB variant; $349 for the 32GB variant. And, oh yea, the devices come fully unlocked, ready for your SIM card to be plugged in (GSM/HSPA/LTE networks only—sorry Sprint and Verizon subscribers).
The only problem was actually getting your hands on one. While it may not be as bad as trying to snatch up a Nexus 6 with its perpetual "out of stock" status, it did require getting an invite from either a OnePlus contest or from owners of the device.
If you've been trying to grab one of these devices, today is the day. For a two-hour window on January 20th, 2015, you can purchase a OnePlus One without the need to an invite.
The two-hour purchase window is meant to ease the bombardment on servers so that you're actually able to complete your purchase. Simply head over here during the allotted time for your region to snag one of these devices.
