This is what you have been waiting for. The OPPO N1 will be available for purchase starting from December 10, 2013.

The N1 is available with Oppo's own skinned Android, with CyanogenMod, or with both. Interesting approach that I hope more manufacturers adopt. Too bad the N1 is such an ugly monstrosity - 5.9" (!) with rotatable camera (!) - compared to its beautiful, elegant, understated, and timeless predecessor.

I don't think it's ugly at all, and apart from the size it looks very comfortable to hold.

I also remember a few PDAs from years past with a rotating camera; I've had a Sony Clie PDA and (I believe) Sony Picturebook laptop with the feature. I don't recall it in a phone, but you're right, the concept isn't new. Nice to see a phone manufacturer bringing it back.
