    From techcrunch:

    How did they do it? They’ve taken the IMEI numbers of their phones and backtracked the production number of their devices using an LG mobile link that’s usually used for finding new firmware. An IMEI number, or International Mobile Station Equipment Identity number, is usually printed on the battery compartment of the inside of the phone. It can be used to prevent stolen phones from accessing a network.

    If you take this link and put your IMEI number at the very end, this LG site will spit back out the IMEI followed by a long string of characters that looks something like this: “LGE960 ACAGBK 212KPHG188745 20121206 GLOBAL/GLOBAL N N”

    If you break this string apart, you get:
    LGE960 = phone model
    A = ?
    CA = Country where the device was sold. (Others include ‘US’ for the U.S., ‘HK’ for Hong Kong, ‘AU’ for Australia and so on.)
    G = Storage (G = 16GB, 8 = 8GB)
    BK = Color
    2 = ?
    12 = Production Month (November)
    K = Production Country (Korea)
    PHG = ?
    188745 = The line or production number, showing that phone was the 188,745th device made.

    • 750,000+ already

      At the current production rate,

      650986 – 18th of January
      752,xxx – 22nd of January
      834,xxx – 27nd of January
      933,xxx – 30th of January

      The 1,000,000th device in the production line is probably being produced on February 1st or February 2nd.

    • These numbers are not correct. They are only speculations. A lot more devices were sold than this. There’s your official article :P

    I’d really love to get a Nexus 4. In my country, South Africa, LG has decided that THEY (LG) don’t think that the Nexus 4 will sell well. Apparently this decision is based on their sales history in South Africa (um… that’s because most of LG earlier Android devices were crap)…

      Absolutely the most desperate and pathetic plea ever!!!!! And you are lying…
      1) lift up your couch cushions
      2) Goto 7-11 and pick up a pre-paid phone
      3) stop whining
      4) tell your dad to take the money from his part-time job and instead of using it to buy you a phone, spend it on food and clothing for his 8 kids and not on booze

  • count me in

    Interesting article with great comments!
    If you have any ideas how the smartphone of the future could be like, you can take part in the international idea contest for students and win €10.000. /

    Best thing is that you don’t have to realize your idea, but upload a 3-minute-video and present your smartphone of tomorrow in order to new design / new features / new functionalities etc. It’s worth to take part in the contest, because the videos will be promoted on Facebook and every Like counts!

  • Dan

    I entered this give-away as a “why not, worth a shot”. Last weekend the screen on my trusty S2 went out, so now my attitude has changed to “please, please, please let me win” :P I feel like an addicted gambler at the slot machines with only a couple coins left haha.
