OnePlus One pre-orders go live this week

Buyer beware: There is a catch when it comes to OnePlus' pre-sale system

The elusive OnePlus One smartphone will finally go on sale to the public with pre-orders opening this week.

The OnePlus One is a rare breed of smartphone. Its spec sheet can go toe-to-toe with anything from Samsung, Apple and HTC, and yet the One sells for $US299.

Letting this too-good-to-be-true offer down was the availability of the smartphone. A controversial invitation only system was put in place as the company tried to reign in demand.

OnePlus now is opening presales of the One as the hype surrounding the smartphone begins to settle. Presales will open to the public at 3PM GMT on 27 October. Keen Australians will have to wake up at 2AM on 28 October if they want the chance to buy a OnePlus One.

There is a catch: presales will only be open for 1 hour. It's best to jump online and ready your order ahead of pre-sales kicking off.

Those that miss out can rest knowing OnePlus will keep opening limited pre-sale windows.

Update, 22 Oct: OnePlus won't ship the One directly to Australia. <i>GGG</i> has investigated ways around this though, which you can read about by clicking here.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
