Re: Oneplus One

The Oneplus looks okay... but they've instantly put me off by taking the fact that it's availability is still limited, and marketed that fact such that it becomes membership of some kind of exclusive club, with those who have one being able to send out a certain number of "invites"* and it's receipt of an "invite"* that allows you to buy one.

* Yeuck. Even if I knew someone who wanted to send me an invite, I routinely turn down invites, though I sometimes accept invitations. Except when it involves becoming a member of an exclusive (or, as in this case, faux-exclusive) club - whether it's an invite or an invitation, they always get binned. Wake me when the phone is more generally available, and I'll see how it compares to the competition and decide then.
