OnePlus appears to be poised to start talks with US carriers about finding a home for its devices in the US market. The company’s CEO, Pete Lau, said in a recent interview with CNET that exploring a US carrier deal is of interest if the timing and terms are right.
With purchasing plans and far reaching marketing arms, the US carrier market amongst the top four of AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint is a lucrative and attractive opportunity for phone manufactures. Getting even one phone into a carrier’s store will almost certainly bump sales up for that phone. But, as other manufactures have found, it is a tough sell to get in with a US carrier.
