    Given that they don't have enough products to sell, they chose to give out invites to ppl who have been supporting (or believed in them).. and they also appreciated them with invites to give them to friends and family.. they can't control on how ppl use them (thru contests or selling them).. at one point in time, even google+ came out on an invite only basis.. just that they didn't had a forum for others to complain.. they would eventually ramp up production and make them available to wider audience.. wish u all luck..

    Can't find the thread but the team mentioned that Oppo does has an ownership and does produce the phones.. but the team is independent.. to say they have been backed up by Oppo..

    It's called marketing. It sounds better for some cool underdog start up to offer good device for really low price than established company like Oppo. To bad it backfired lol

    i agree with the begging system, pathetic, i bought one straight from ebay maybe its a bit diearer, hell with all this bragging scheme, i paid about 50 pounds more, better than begging for invites...

    Dude, you been on this forum for like 3 days! There is a good chance you'll get an invite in the next few weeks.
    Yes it's a bit of a pain in the ***, the invite system. But the phone is pretty great for how cheap it is.
    Just be patient, no need to beg. Just comment on posts, get noticed in a good way... And put up a profile picture! Anything, fluffy bunny even.

    My knowledge is based purely on the forums and wiki.. my take away is a phone great on features and affordable price.. I too wish they had wide availability..

    @OP : You should take Legal Action against @zoranthesaint ... This is not an age restricted forum nor it's the right place for some angry psychos to throw that kind of BS at the community, WHATEVER THE REASONS ARE...

    i think economist can explain this situation.
    we got product with high demand due to the fact that their price/performance is outstanding among others. and .. in fact you can actually buy this project anytime. all you got to do is pay 100 usd extra.
    the choice is yours to made.

    Well, there is a small group of them working on this. They do invites because if they were to do 'go ahead and order' it would be chaos, orders would take months to fulfill. It is a bit hectic, yes, but once they get expanded, everything will be out of this phase and they will be able to keep up with the demand. Also keep in mind since they cut out advertisers, in order to get invites, you must like, tweet, and share. Which is a someone good advertising gimmick in its own..
