OnePlus One winners get devices with "thank you" card, but sans a charger and a SIM ejector tool
As you might remember, the provocative Smash the Past promotion of OnePlus backfired on the company and created a fair amount of negative media backlash – initially, people were required to smash a smartphone, but after a while, OnePlus demanded that they donate them to charity instead. The prize of the promotion? Well, a 100 random luckers will get a Cyanogenmod-powered OnePlus One for just a dollar. Sounds unimaginably good, right?

Well, the provocative promotion appears to be over and apparently the 100 winners have already been chosen, as some have allegedly already received their affordable high-end smartphones. It seems that all OnePlus One devices are bundled with a signed "thank you" card from the CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau. While his personal signature is a nice touch, several winners noticed that two relatively important accessories are missing from the package – there was neither a charger, nor a SIM tray ejector tool.

It appears that OnePlus rushed to deliver the smartphones to the winners of the promotion before the official retail boxes were ready for shipment. Fortunately, any microUSB cable and charger can be used to do the job, so the lucky 100 ones should not have any issues with using any compatible accessory. Hopefully, early OnePlus One adopters won't experience the same issues, as the company claims that all retail boxes will be ready by the end of this month, just before the OnePlus One lands on the shelves.

UPDATE: It appears that the official retail box of the OnePlus One would not contain a charger or a SIM ejector tool, just a USB cable.
