The almost ludicriously sized Oppo N1 isn’t exactly a device aimed at everyone. No, its gargantuan dimensions simply preclude it from much mass market appeal. But for those of you who can handle the device’s macroscopic proportions, Christmas has come a little early—one day early, to be exact.
Earlier today, the CyanogenMod team announced that a version of the N1 with CyanogenMod 10.2 preinstalled has just gone on sale. The device is available directly on the Oppo Style website for $600 US. But for that price, and at with such large dimensions, it’s difficult to imagine the N1 CM Edition displacing the crowd favorite Nexus 5 any time soon. In any case, this is still a momentous occasion, as the N1 CM Edition is now the first device to come bundled with CyanogenMod, as well as the first time that CyanogenMod has come with bundled Gapps since Google’s C&D letter many years ago
In order to keep everything as open as possible, the CM team has already provided factory images for the CM Edition of the device, as well as kernel and device-specific source code. This is, of course, for the preinstalled CM 10.2-flavored build of AOSP-derived Jelly Bean goodness. And for those who would like to try their hand at cooking up a KitKat ROM for the device, the CM team has provided apq8064-common device source code.
