Earlier today Chinese premium phone
manufacturer Oppo came out with a press release, announcing that come
December, a limited CyanogenMod edition of its N1 phablet will be
made available for the international audience.
Running CyanogenMod's custom ROM out
of the box, the special edition will retain its current price tag of
about $580. Apart from the usual tweaks and extra features that come
with CM, the team behind it has also done some work in order to
integrate into it all the special functions that the giant Oppo N1
has to offer, like the O-Touch rear touch panel, the rotating camera
and the O-Click Bluetooth remote control along with some features
taken straight from Oppo's very own Color ROM.
Apart from the extra perk of running
on the highly-customizable CM, adopters of the special edition Oppo
N1 will also get the giant phablet in a unique packaging, CyanogenMod
stickers and a special case featuring both CM's and Oppo's mascots,
Cid and Ollie.
This is the first time that the
CyanogenMod has landed a deal such as this, and it'll
be interesting to see what else the newly-incorporated
company has in storage in the years to come.
