Google still doesn’t know how to launch phones

Back in December a group of Android enthusiasts worked out that just 400,000 Nexus 4 devices were in the wild. They used the IMEI number to estimate the production volume and this is practically the only Nexus 4 shipment figure we ever got to see.

Now an XDA forum member claims that the 999,998th Nexus 4 sold in Turkey. Google and LG have been getting a lot of flak over their inability to meet demand for the new Nexus phone and the fact that only a few hundred thousand devices were shipped since launch.
