OK, so OnePlus’s last contest didn’t quite work out the way they wanted. Sweep it under the rug, they shall. The broom they’ll use to sweep? Another contest — one with up to 10,000 invites to buy a OnePlus One up for grabs.
After Cyanogen Inc. attempted to distance themselves from the fiasco, OnePlus has officially taken down their “Ladies First” contest. Those that participated (despite outcry) will be contacted for prizes.
you weren’t already annoyed by the fact that you’d need an invite to buy a OnePlus One, you were probably ticked off at the environmentally irresponsible Phone Smash idea. If that didn’t quite get under your skin, OnePlus has come up with another “genius” contest that’s bound to stir up some foul press.
OnePlus owners can look forward to an even more stable phone today as a new update has started rolling out to handsets. Version 30O — which is still CyanogenMod 11S-based — brings us Android 4.4.4 and all the fixes and changes that come with it.
Shouldn’t come as much of a surprise (given who’s handling the software side of things), but if there was any doubt, the folks at OnePlus are committing to bringing Android L to the One within 3 months of a final release.
