    That's about it right there. The longer they wait, the more time it gives their competition to figure out how they're making this phone profitable at the $350 price point, or advancements in tech will naturally make this phone less value for money.

    It's easy....they lied like they already did a lot of times....
    they are waiting that the cost of components go down to save money.
    In the same time they have made us believe that they would have been able to provide us the best phone on the market at the lowest price.
    The availability will increase in a proportional way to the decrease of the cost of components

    Well it doesn't seem like a great strategy to call your phone the 2014 flagship killer, and then wait until the last month in 2014 to figure out what is on the market, make a phone that is technically better, claim you made the greatest phone of 2014, and then call yourself a winner and move on to the next thing that will help them sell more units to the chinese.

    I guess they sold all those phones in the Chinese market (I don't blame that after all that is their country).

    I don't think they lied, just were unrealistic. I know I looked at that announcement many times, but as I saw the very, very slow rollout and the contests, which I believe were to kill time, I realized that no way would they meet any of the deadlines. I am still hopeful that July will see a "large" rollout of invites. I'm counting on at least 30,000. If not, then I may have to take back my saying they are not liars.

    I doubt it was poor planning. Something happened but we'll never know. It could have been a contract dispute with a shipper, or they ran afoul with the port authority in Shenzhen and their export pipeline got cut off.

    A bank, or even their equivalent of the IRS, might have called in debts or slapped a crippling lien on them and forced them to divert stock to the China domestic market.

    It could have been none of that, but something as simple as a necessary part that is required overseas but not in China became unavailable. Some dipsh!t @sshole supplier might have gotten wind that they were the sole supplier of a required part and decided to triple the cost.

    Part of the phone might have come from a factory in Vietnam that got caught up in the whole oil rig controversy.

    Finally, I am reading that everyone has come to a point I have been for a long time: we are pissed OPO! Either way, I still like the 1+1 and I still would like to buy one: but you have lost most of my respect.

    I remember, but I do wonder, how does the roll out of the OPPO Find 7 affect the OPO manufacturing, shipping, etc. OPPO seems to be making their quoted dates. Coincidence?
