    I have just recently been introduced to this but this is really brilliant! This is the first concept I have seen of implementing a new dimension to selling - crowd-sourcing marketing. The product and customer service has to be really good to embark on this strategy. Will keenly follow the progress in this space.

    After spreading the word and showing the One to friends and colleagues, it would be nice to be able to pass on invites or even buy one more for myself after my wife took the first one and loves it.

    I'm sure they are still making money on the phone. As the hardware gets older, they will get discounts. The StyleSwap may cut into their forecasts. It may cost them sales in the end though. It's dishonest of OnePlus to remove the feature, but yet still keep it on their main page. Not everyone who orders reads the forums. They expect a StyleSwap case. Bad business practices. I've asked for a refund on my phone since this is not the phone that was advertised to me, and Customer Service just told me that I can get a Sandstone black case via Customer Service...they did not answer my request at all. I'm losing hope in the company as a whole.

    Never seen a company so determined to balance the perfect product with consumer values in pricing. It's amazing what things can spark from this.

    These guys are marketing geniuses. By using referral marketing via means of 'invite and competition' campaign's, their able to create a mass online audience wnating to buy and pretty much market anything they want to them. Internet Traffic Kings. Gotta love the Cyanogenmod open-source UI as well. Definitely a company for the future; If i had money I'd be investing.... ps. still waiting for in invite :s
