Style Swap rear covers, including bamboo, no longer in production for the OnePlus One

While production of the bamboo rear cover accessory has been stopped, the few pieces that meet QC standards will still be offered with a set of instructions for safe installation, so as not to damage the phone, cover or battery. According to OnePlus, the bamboo backs that will be offered look "amazing." In addition, OnePlus plans on offering limited edition phones with a back made of kevlar or denim.
The manufacturer did apologize for the situation, and said that it is all part of the learning process that will help them make the OnePlus Two next year, without suffering through the same mistakes.

If the 2 isn't a success I can see them bowing out of the market. It's pretty clear that, despite the well above average hardware vs price ratio, the company came across absolutely stupid hurdles in making the device. All those things have virtually destroyed consumer interest.

Meh, the material they use for the black 64GB version is already awesome enough, so I'm not too upset by it. Although the kevlar back sounds like it could be interesting.
