OnePlus wants you to smash your phone for a OnePlus One

'OnePlus Phone Smash' begins April 25

As part of today's today's OnePlus One announcement, the manufacturer has unveiled a novel way for fans to get in on the ground floor. From this Friday, April 25, you'll be able to head to to and apply to destroy your current phone in exchange for the Cyanogen-powered beast. Just 100 will be selected to dispense with their old phone and and pay just $1 for a new OnePlus One.

A countdown timer currently live on OnePlus' site suggests it'll go live at 9 a.m. E.T. on the 25th, so you'll want to hold off smashing anything for the next couple of days. OnePlus' says the first 100 to "smash the past" will be "the very first" to get the new handset. What's more, they'll also be able to invite friends to buy the device through the OnePlus invite program.

Would you smash up your current handset in exchange for the much-hyped handset? Let us know in the comments.
