OnePlus opens contest to win an invite to buy one of 150 OnePlus One devices

OnePlus invite

The OnePlus One seems like a fantastic device, with high-end specs and a very low price, but unfortunately you can’t just go out and buy one. No, OnePlus has made it significantly more difficult. You need an invite to buy the device, meaning you’ll have to earn it somehow. But if you’re intent on buying the OnePlus One, your first chance (without smashing your current phone) starts now.

OnePlus has announced a contest to win 1 of 150 invites to purchase a 64GB Sandstone Black device for full price. To enter, you must do things like follow OnePlus on Twitter and Google+, tweet about the giveaway and more. You can earn up to 8 entries. However, with nearly 300,000 people entered to win 1 of 150 invites, the chances of getting a ticket aren’t all that high.

You may ask why there is such a low supply of OnePlus One hardware. We don’t know. Since OnePlus has backing from Oppo, a slow production is unlikely. And unless each device is made in a village by a group of 5 elders, there should be more units out there. Of course, limiting supply helps to create hype. I can’t say I’m a fan of this tactic, but if you want to win the chance to buy a OnePlus One, hit the source link to enter the contest and tell us what you think of this throttled supply!
