No invitation required to buy the OnePlus One on January 20th

If you've been wanting to purchase the OnePlus One but haven't been able to snag an invitation, this coming Tuesday is your lucky day. And you won't have to set an early alarm clock to make the purchase. From 7pm to 9pm EST on January 20th, both the 16GB Silk White model ($299) and the 64GB Sandstone Black version ($349) will be offered to all buyers.
OnePlus has stated that it had to institute the invitation system to make sure it didn't build too many units. As a new company, money is certainly an issue and it would not have been good for OnePlus to have to write down unsold inventory and distribute it via the cut-out bin at your local department store.
As it turns out, the OnePlus One has been a huge success with nearly one million units sold in 2014. And as with anything successful, a sequel is being prepped. As time goes by and the company's bank account grows fatter, hopefully we will see the invitation system go away for good.
To order the OnePlus One sans invitation, click on the sourcelink during the appropriate time period. For those outside of the states, in Asia that will be between 7pm and 9pm HKT and in Europe that will be between 7pm and 9pm GMT on Tuesday.

If you're complaining about not being able to get an invite or a chance to buy the phone, you've never tried to find one at all.

They should learn from googles early attempts to sell the nexus line. Make the easy as can be to buy, and they'll sale more.

Agreed! I wanted one of these so bad a few months ago but I've moved on. They should do this for the 2nd generation and I will definitely buy one to try it out.

If it didn't have cyanogenmod and the actual Android os it'd be a good choice.

You'd rather the phone runs on iOS? Thanks, but no, thanks.

Ummm CyanogenMod is Android, or at least based on it
