And execs (publicly, anyway) seem pleased with 500,000 or so phones sold thus far

On Friday’s podcast we talked a little bit about the HTC One M8 and just how many — or how few, if your cup tends to be more empty than full — HTC has sold in the month or so that its newest flagship has been available.

While HTC has declined to release specific sales numbers (no surprise there, as that sort of thing is a rare occurrence for any smartphone manufacturer — and HTC turned down our request today), we actually can get a pretty good ballpark estimation for just how many HTC One M8s are out there right now.

And we have Google Play to thank for it.
