There are traditional ways to launch a phone, and then there's the OnePlus way. The launch of the OnePlus One has been anything but conventional, with a metered invitation systemm set up to order phones as they become available instead of pre-ordering and then waiting like a schlub. But if you don't want to wait for an invite, OnePlus is offering the opportunity to engage in some marketing of your own for a chance to get an invite, or possibly to even win a black 64GB edition.
It's rather simple, really. You get five chances to get an entry: like OnePlus on Facebook, join their email mailing list, tweet about the giveaway (spam your followers!), follow OnePlus on Instagram, and/or post in the OnePlus forums.
Entries are open through the next week, at which point 2500 invites for the 64GB OnePlus One will be given out, as well as the aforementioned black version to a lucky winner. At least nobody's being asked to destroy a perfectly good phone this time.
