    The company is in the business of making a profit not manufacturing phones to keep. Sooner or later they will be on the market.

    I agree with Belfast Steve. What they worry about is getting in a similar situation experienced by Xiomai when they launched a cheap version of the phone. They were sold out immediately and the product was flocked into black market for a big markup. OnePlus is not a charitable company, they want to maximize their return. I suspect they have not gauged the production quantity and I suspect the first release will have only the 16Gb version, not the 64Gb version. I have seen only the 16Gb version advertised by a Chinese company in Beijing. Whether it is really available or not, I am not gamed to enquire with them yet.

    There will be over 100k members by the time it releases. Doubt they have that many invites initially. If u wait long enough, eventually you'll get invited, but depends if u still need one at that time.

    I doubt the forms will reach 100,000 members that quickly. It's been sitting at 27,000ish members for the past couple of days. More people will join, but I highly doubt that there will be that many members is such short of a time frame.

    Yup, that is a good question.
    How long one would be willing to wait and how long would one can really wait, are the questions.
    I see 2-3 months as feasible but longer than that, I think, most people will start looking somewhere else regardless of how good and how reasonable the price is.
    I just hope I can get one even normally without invites in 2-3 months.

    We'll see. Before the announcement, there were less than 10K members , it nearly tripled in a week. We still have almost a month to go before launch.

    You're assuming everyone will get 3 invites. The only ones guaranteed are the 100 winners of the Smash contest.

    I think once OP actually makes an announcement letting everyone know how this system will work, things will calm down slightly.

    Psicosis i think in May will be sold by invitation and in June anyone can buy without invitations.
    Thats my point. It doesn't make sense use invitations all life :p
