OnePlus One prices will increase in Europe on March 25


OnePlus has confirmed that it is being forced to increase prices of the One in Europe later this month due to the decreasing value of the euro. The move means an entry-level 16GB One handset will soon cost €299 — the current price of a 64GB model.


“Last year, many other companies insured themselves against this volatility by launching devices with higher prices in Europe than in other markets,” OnePlus explained on its blog. “This is something that we opted not to do, as we are committed to maintaining razor-thin margins in order to give the most value back to our fans.”


With the value of the euro continuing to drop, however, those “razor-thin” profit margins are now non-existent profit margins, and the One is actually being sold at a loss in the EU.


While price increases are never good news for consumers, then, it’s a move OnePlus has had to make. And of course, even at €299, the One is still a terrific smartphone.


“We sincerely wish that we had an alternative option here,” the company added. “We explored all possible avenues in an attempt to avoid any changes, but as a startup with exceedingly-slim margins, our current euro prices simply aren’t sustainable.”


So, as of Saturday, March 25, a 16GB Silk White One will cost €299 (approx. $320) — up from €269 (approx. $288), and a 64GB Sandstone Black model will cost €349 (approx. $373) — up from €299.


OnePlus has decided to give customers 7 days’ notice to be “fair,” and until then, the company will simply absorb the cost of selling the devices at a loss. For now, at least, the prices of its accessories will not be affected, and will remain the same.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
