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 thought the OHA prevented Android OEMs from shipping Android forks like CyanogenMod.

It prevents Android OEMS from shipping Android derivatives that do not pass the Android Certification Test. If Cyanogenmod passes the certification test, no harm, no foul.

In reality cyanogenmod is not that much different than the version of Android that Samsung ships: different launcher, some different options in different spots, and some additional apis.
