Google Nexus 4 sells over 1 million since it was launched

Over at XDA-Developers, the brains of the operation have found a way to keep track of the total number of Nexus 4 devices sold. At the beginning of last month, the Nexus 4 had sold about 400,000 units, but as of this month, that number has more than doubled to over 1 million total Google Nexus 4 devices sold. According to the post,

Ladies and gentleman, we just reached the millionth device!

(of course just judging by serial number, i.e. minus gaps)

ATURBK 302KPSL999998 20130205 TURKEY

Which means, IMEI prefix 35391805* is now officially complete and the next one will be started.

Just how do they keep track of these devices? Check it out:

Production date is encoded in the first 3 positions (reading from left to right):
1st position defines YEAR: 0 – 2010, 1 – 2011, 2 – 2012, 3 – 2013 and so on
2rd and 3rd define MONTH: 01 – January, 02 – February, 03 – March, 04 – April, 05 – May, 06 – June, 07 – July, 08 – August, 09 – September, 10 – October, 11 – November, 12 – December

4th position defines county:
K – Korea, C – China.

For example:
211KPBF****** (last 6 digits are hidden for security reasons):

So, 211 – 2012 November (11), K – Korea.
