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 think you're proving my point by quoting yourself.

"It's an ugly monstrosity compared to it's predecessor."

Vs e.g. it doesn't look quite so elegant compared to it's predecessor.

There's a world of difference.

I think it's a monstrosity, you don't. Neither of us is right, because beauty is an opinion.

Hey, that's the excuse I give the girls that don't want to go out with me...

Sad sad.

..A nit-picky point, but surely the Find 7 not the N1 will be the successor to the Find 5 ?

ps- looking for to your take on the jolla phone some time, was well peaved that I held off pre-ordering for too long and lost the chance.

No there isn't any real difference between those statements. They could both be used in the same situation and mean the same thing.

Thom's statement could easily just be praise for the older Oppo, while yours could be a terrible insult for the newer one.
