Update: And just like that the pre-order window is closed. If you missed it they recommending signing up for their newsletter to find out when the next pre-order window will be available.
After almost five months of their invite-only system, the OnePlus One is finally available for “pre-order”.
As with all things OnePlus, this is a slightly unconventional system: you can finally just go to the site and place an order for the phone, but it still could be a bit of a wait before you receive the phone. You will get a shipping estimate after you have placed your order, though, so you won’t be completely in the dark about when the phone is shipping to you.
If you miss the first pre-order window, just remember that invites are still prioritized over pre-orders, so you can go ahead and hunt one of those done to save yourself the wait.
For all of their bizarre ordering schemes and regrettable marketing snafus, the simple truth is that OnePlus has created a solid phone at an amazing price (something even more desirable now that the Nexus program has gone upscale).
Anyone planning to place a pre-order today? If you do, we would love to hear how the process goes for you.
