Quick, grab a OnePlus One today, it's the company's birthday

OnePlus has been making it very difficult to get its flagship OnePlus One phone. It's been a year since its arrival so OnePlus is throwing a virtual party and letting everyone get a OnePlus without having to wait for an invite. Yes, you can really just buy one online now and get 11 per cent off accessories.

Working for your OnePlus

Just note that the site is being hammered right now as eager OnePlus buyers are flooding the website.

You can keep trying to get one here or you can attempt to try your hand at one of OnePlus' contests. There are two, just so you know. The first one involves choosing a name for the new OnePlus One ROM - the prizes are sweet: not only do you get a phone, you'll even be flown to Hong Kong. Just head over to the forum and give it a try.

If you're more a Vine-kind of person, then wish the OnePlus guys a Happy Birthday and you could also win a phone. Note you have to make a video to win and don't be like the poor sods commenting on OnePlus' birthday Vines thinking that's how the contest works. So follow OnePlus on Vine and then create your own Vine video.

In other news, OnePlus is following in Xiaomi's wake with its own powerbank that comes with a 10,000 mAh rating and is priced at US$14.99 (S$20). When will it be available? Expect it somewhere around 2015.
