The OnePlus One gets another price drop before proving it exists

i thought marketing was about presenting a product. presenting is about telling as much as it is about showing.
have a little patience. this suspense would indicate that the marketing is working.

If he does keep his promise and prices it under $400, that puts it in the same league as the Nexus 5 in terms of price. I'm interested in seeing if he can make that happen.

They're trying so hard to build up anticipation for this device. Maybe a bit too hard

We're currently debating about it on the forums, but since it comes with CyanogenMod, expect that rooting it will be quite easy.

It will cost upwards of $230 to assemble I'm guessing. They could probably pull this pricing off. Wouldn't be comfortable for them though.

They don't expect to make any profit for 2 years after the release of the OnePlus One.

Really? Could you provide a source? Sorry but that just seems unlikely. Do you mean they don't expect demand to be high or they won't be making any profit through sale of the device?

I would be interested in getting this as a 2nd phone if they did price this under $400 AND it also came out as a GPE, Might be very very very interesting.
