OnePlus Runs Out Of 20,000 OnePlus One Invites in Minutes

The OnePlus One is still a hot ticket. It’s one of the best Android smartphones currently on the market and, better yet, it ships unlocked and costs less than a lot of the other flagships out there. The only problem? It’s still really hard to get one.

The company tried to make it bit easier and on Friday when it announced that interested parties could enter to win one of 20,000 invites for the OnePlus One. Unfortunately, the device is in such high demand that all of the invites have already been eaten up.

OnePlus said the new invite contest was created as a warm-up for the official no-invite launch, which it said is on the “verge of commencement.” Once that kicks off, provided there’s enough supply, you should be able to order a OnePlus One without hassle. The new giveaway for 20,000 invites was only temporary, and the company warned folks that they needed to act fast. Within hours, however, each invite was already claimed.

We’ll keep you in the loop if more are made available and, of course, when you can finally buy one without an invite.
