Ok, which brings us to following:
Phone produced in Oct had serial#
92000 - USA
95000 - USA
109000 - GER
110000 - UK
132000 - USA
138000 - USA
150000 - USA
So, they did produce at least 60-90K devices in October, 60-100K in November and 100K+ in December, still counting (just 16G devices).
I am mainly doing all those calculations to understand what is really happening, i.e. how big was an initial stock and is the google doing something to ramp up the production (there was an conspiracy theory, that google is deliberatly throttling the availability to produce hype).
So, given the mid November launch, we would get something like 100K 16G devices prepared for launch (for all markets).
Then I suppose it took at least a week after launch to source all the components and resume production which could add 1-2Weeks of idle time in Nov and correspondingly less units produced.
What would be insteresting, if someone has a 16G 210K device with
353918-05-xxxxxx-x with xxxxxx greater than 06xxxx
or 211K with lower than 09xxxx
This would help to better estimate the october production counts (and initial launch stock).
Nov-Dec cut off is reasonably well known somewhere withing 15k devices.
It would be also interesting to know if someone has a 212K device with 353918-05-xxxxxx-x where xxxxx is greater than 26xxxx, so we know production counts for Dec.
