OnePlus One launch is delayed due to last minute software update
The 64GB black OnePlus One, priced at $349, is scheduled to be offered first, followed by the 16GB model in white for $299. Invitations to buy the One Plus One have started going out, and the company has said that anyone who wants to buy a model should be able to. Earlier today, we listed a few retailers where you can purchase the phone without an invitation, as long as you don't mind paying more for the flagship killer. We're not sure how the delay will affect orders placed through the retailers named in the article.
There probably are more than just a few disappointed OnePlus One buyers out there, including those who wonder why the phone couldn't have been shipped with a patch sent out later OTA. Apparently OnePlus and Cyanogen made the decision they did, and now it is just a matter of time, waiting for the certification process to be completed...again. In a letter sent out to those who have received invitations to purchase the device, OnePlus says that a shipping date for the phone cannot be released at this point in time.
