Its worth mentioning that your getting Cyanogenmod 11S, specifically made for this device, right our of the box and the best processor on the market today.  It just all seems like a dream since this seems to be the most all-around, well put together device on the market despite the missing Micro SD slot (ugh, why?).  Heres the best part, its going to be released at the price point of $299 for the 16gb Silk White version.  This is insane.  If you want more storage, you can also get the 64gb Sandstone Black version which should quench your storage thirsts, for only $349.  If your thinking what I’m thinking, then this is some good hardcore competition were looking at here.  Only the Nexus 5  has been the device to offer performance and pricing in the same package.

Why wouldn’t there be a catch?  The device is set to release sometime in mid to late May with one exception; you have to be invited in order to purchase (at least at first).  If you are one of the chosen few, you can invite others to purchase as well which should be interesting how that will create publicity.  Hopefully we get invited!  Nonetheless, this is pretty groundbreaking to have those specs with that pricing.  I wonder what Google has to say about this.
