After months of speculation, we can finally say for certain - our first phone will ship with a specially designed version of CyanogenMod with exciting new elements and features! The good news was announced earlier today by our CEO Pete Lau and Cyanogen Inc CTO Steve Kondik. The CyanogenMod team will work in tandem with us to combine the best hardware with the best software. They are developing a custom version of CyanogenMod with special features and tweaks. We think the end result will be quite spectacular! As Pete puts it, "What's coming is one of the most popular mobile operating systems specifically developed for the best hardware, with a unique twist. The smartphone industry is ripe for disruption, and 2014 should prove to be a huge year for the future of the market." Steve is optimistic too: "Upon hearing Pete's vision for OnePlus, it was clear we had found the right partner. By combining our software expertise with Pete's background in hardware and design, we'll develop a phone that will exceed both of our expectations." We debated on the name for our debut phone, and finally decided on the popular OnePlus One. We are launching in select markets and eventually expanding to more global availability. Keep an eye out for the OnePlus One in the first half of 2014!
