It's a Christmas Eve miracle. The OPPO N1 CyanogenMod Edition — the first phone to ship with CM and with officially sanctioned Google apps — is now available for purchase online. It's a hefty sum at $599 — but that's par for the course for an unlocked device, CM or not.
As a reminder, this is a large, 5.9-inch smartphone, running Android 4.2 and CM 10.2 out of the box. It's got 16 gigabytes of storage, lacks LTE, sports a 13-megapixel camera that rotates from back to front — and it comes with special CM stickers and a case. Tres cool.
Also important: The source code and factory image for the phone are already available.
And before anyone chimes in that you can get CyanogenMod on a new phone for a few hundred dollars less (or your current phone for free), you need to remember that that's not the point. This is just the start, and it's an important one for Cyanogen Inc.
