OnePlus pre-order system will go live for 24 hours on October 27th

oneplus_pre-order_systemEarlier this month, OnePlus tested out a pre-order system instead of the extremely difficult invite system that they’ve used to sell the OnePlus One so far. The pre-orders were also sent out as “invitations,” however, so not everyone had a chance to put an order in. Fortunately, the company is opening up their pre-0rder system again next week, but this time it will be open to anyone that wants to put an order in.

Starting today, you can add a OnePlus One and accessories to your shopping cart and get everything ready to be ordered. Then, for 24 hours on October 27th, those orders will process and you’ll immediately get a date for when your device will ship. It’s not clear on just how far back those shipping dates will be, but I guess we’ll know next week.
