Normally, you can’t buy the OnePlus One, one of the best bang-for-your-buck smartphones out there, without an invitation. Soon, however, it will become available to everyone, no invite needed.
For one hour, that is.
The OnePlus One, for $300, will go on preorder at 11 a.m. Eastern on Nov. 17 for exactly 60 minutes. Just in case you plan to be busy at 11 a.m. next Monday, you can head to the company’s site to prefill your preorder right now. That will put you only a click away from purchasing when the clock strikes 11 next week.
Yahoo Tech’s David Pogue reviewed the Android-based One earlier this year, declaring that, with its larger screen, comparable speediness, and great battery life, the handset “breathes down the necks of the expensive Samsung and HTC phones.” (Those phones generally retail for more than $700 without a two-year contract.)
Since this is already the second time OnePlus has made the One available outside its invite-only system, now may be your one chance for a while to get yourself a One.
