After months of making die hard fans work to get their phones, One Plus is just went ahead and ditched their global sales strategy of selling through invites. No invites needed to buy the OnePlus One in India.
Their forums are filled with people complaining about how it’s really difficult to get your hands on an invite and flash sales work better, but then there are others like me who feel otherwise. Probably the OnePlus team in India took note of the former and decided they should try a sale without invites.
A mailer from One Plus stated that
All those in India who couldn’t lay their hands on the latest OnePlus One smartphones! To celebrate the successful completion of 10 weeks of OnePlus in India, Amazon and OnePlus will hold the first-ever open sale of OnePlus One phones, starting 10 AM on February 10, 2015.
Expect this to be a flash sale with everyone who hasn’t yet got a chance to own a OPO phone to log into Amazon.in at 10am sharp if not earlier.
Update: Twitter is a buzz with news that Globally the Phone will go on sale without invites on Tuesdays.
