    Hello everyone,

    It always feels great to bring smiles to our ardent followers. We appreciate the positive feedback received on our previous week’s announcement. This week we have even bigger and better news to share - something that everyone has been waiting patiently to hear.

    Firstly, we are thrilled to confirm that the One will be available for our Indian users in December. We can’t wait to bring your favourite phone to your hands. As all the details have now been perfected and last-mile hurdles have been cleared, the exact launch date will soon be announced in the coming days on our forums.

    As announced earlier, the product will be exclusively available through our e-commerce partner for users who have a valid India-specific invite. This is to ensure that all of our fans across India can easily buy the product online or through a mobile app without having to worry about payments, logistics or support.

    The other key element that everyone has been waiting for is price. While we obviously can’t share the price at the moment, I can confidently suggest that it is priced at a very competitive price point.

    Secondly, we have recently launched a contest to win India specific invites in celebration of our first anniversary. We are totally impressed with the enthusiasm and creative talent of our Indian fans. To our passionate fans, thanks once again and a sincere request to share your entries on your favorite platforms as well to spread the love. Today is the last day of our very first India specific contest and you can still submit your entry here by 10.30 PM today if you have not participated yet.

    In case, you were not able to participate or did not win the coveted invite this time, don’t worry this is just the beginning and we have many more surprises up our sleeves in coming days. But for now, we’d like to thank all the participants and congratulate lucky winners who will get an opportunity to own the mighty One very soon.

    How soon? Well, sooner than most people expect. We pride ourselves in positively surprisingly our fans and this time will be no exception.

    Lastly, we have few other smaller yet important good news to share. The Indian team is set to expand as we have narrowed down our search to handful of individuals and will hopefully have them on-board very soon. In addition, we will be moving to our first local office next month. Recently, we also crossed 5,000 likes on our Facebook page in less than a month. Do join us on Facebook in case you have not already done so.

    We are excited to work together with you as we move forward. Keep watching this space for more updates as we will be back very soon. As always, your feedback and suggestions are welcome.

    Never Settle.

    1) there are to many spammers in the contest how will you handle that.
    2) the people who are following you for months will they get invited .
    3) Don't u think it will be nice to give all Indian invites and don't held these type of contest
    4) when will you announcement of contest winners.
    5) the people who are following you for months like me and others will they be at least given invite as we have constantly help people in the forum and make the forum clean don't you think a cupcake user come 2 days ago and post a photo and write never settle black black get an invite while loyalist following you for months didn't get invite don't u think that's stupid.
    6) why don't you give invite to all Indian rather than doing some stupid contest.
