1 Million Google Nexus 4 Has Been Shipped
According to a XDA Developer forum post by its member called Draugaz we came to know that Google has shipped 1 million Nexus 4. But Google refused to comment on this, but sources said that the company is happy on achieving this.
The XDA Post goes this way:
“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.”
Draugaz has also given some other information about decoding the IMEI number
