OnePlus opens physical store in Beijing
Believe it or not, OnePlus has opened a brick and mortar store in Beijing. The "Experience" store is the manufacturer's first such retail location. OnePlus held a media event on Tuesday, to commemorate the opening of the location. The store will be open for trial runs starting on December 1st, and will be fully open for business on December 20th.

The store has the OnePlus One on the shelves, along with the bamboo covered limited edition model, and the JBL Special Edition of the phone. The latter was introduced last month. Inside the store is a training area where customers are shown how to use certain products. Headphones, speakers and other accessories are on display, including different shells for the phone.

Reports out of China say that this is just the beginning and that OnePlus will be adding additional stores in the future. Perhaps that will mean less of a reliance on the invitation system that OnePlus has used to sell its first device. Recently, we told you how OnePlus founder Carl Pei said that using the invitations is a way to prevent the company from building too many phones. A new company like OnePlus cannot afford to have too much of its cash tied up in depreciating inventory.

They started to sell the phone much widely than before. I have it and it is really an excellent phone.

Off topic: Guys this is my favorite phone site and I have great friends here. I just got three invites from OnePlus. I used one and I have two more that I don't wanna use or sell.

Anyone needs an invite just give me an email to send it to you. For the first two friends who really want to buy OnePlus One. Thank u!

h3amza, I'm deeply sorry. I could not send you one because you recently created your account.

I will give it to you only if not any member here shows up and asked for one by the end of tomorrow.

Thank you

That's not really fair. I don't want to start anything and I don't want to offend anyone, but it shouldn't matter if he just made the account. You asked for an email and he was one of the first 2 to offer it.

P.s I appreciate that you're being generous to everyone :)

I just wanna offer a benefit to my old friends here. Otherwise, I was able to throw away my invites in OnePlus One forum or Faccebook page. Anyway, I will send it to him if no one claims this invite here by the end of the day. Thank you

As you can see, I have been a member of this great site for a while.
I would really like that invite.
I have owned a Lumia 920 for two years now and would like a great android flagship for a change.
I am limited on budget so I could not get anything $500+

Thanks

my email is 6.282tau@gmail.com

Yeah, stores tend to have very few people in them when they haven't opened for business yet.
