Forum members recently found a way to keep track of the amount of Google Nexus 4 devices that have been sold. As of last month, 400,000 units of the Nexus 4 were reported to have been sold; now according to new reports, the 1 million mark has been breached.

"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. This definitely good news for Google, though one has to admit it took a long time for the device to breach the 1 million mark. If Google had made this device available in every market, the numbers could have been extremely different," noted the XDA Developers forum thread

For those who are interested, this is how the XDA guys keep track of Nexus 4 devices:

"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."
