    Carl, Apr 29, 2014 :
    When we started OnePlus, one of the first things we announced was that our product would be available internationally in Q2 2014. We're well on track of achieving that.

    However, after our product announcement, we realized that far more people wanted the One than what we originally anticipated. Over the past few days, we have been frantically adjusting our production schedule to make sure that as many people possible can buy the One, as soon as possible.

    In our updated plan, we prioritized for two aspects; time to market and availability of the high capacity model (in that order). We now know that people want the 64GB Sandstone Black far more than the 16GB Silk White, but we also know that more than everything, people just want to get their hands on the device as soon as possible.

    What we've done is dramatically increase the amount of 64GB Sandstone Black models in our production plans, while producing 16GB Silk White as long as they don't delay the time to market for Sandstone Black.

    Our production schedule is as follows:
    • Ready now - 100 for phone smashers
    • Mid to late May - Larger batch 16GB Silk White for the first batch of invites
    • Late May to early June - Larger batch 64GB Sandstone Black
    • Later in June - Increased general availability, people who want it should be able to get an invite without much trouble in June
    Update May 6: After seeing how popular the 64GB version was compared to the 16GB, we have pushed back the production of the 16GB Silk White in favor of getting the 64GB Sandstone Black out quicker.

    Aaaw:(
    I guess I'll have to wait a bit longer for the 64 gb version then...
    But what about 64gb versions with silk white backs? Have you answered that before?:)

    You say a larger batch of black in early June, does that imply that there will be a batch in may?
    Thanks!

    I don't have a problem with this, but get ready for 400 posts of people being angry at this and then 23 new threads every day complaining about it

    Hoping and praying I'm one of the first 100.

    I literally will whither away and die by mid/late June.
