“The Taiwanese company has begun HomePod shipments. However, revenue contribution from the product to Inventec is expected to be limited this quarter, as the initial shipment is not large,” a source in HomePod’s supply chain told the Taipei Times by telephone on condition of anonymity.
Total shipments are expected to reach 10-12 million units this year with Inventec and Hon Hai splitting orders 50/50.
Apple was scheduled to release the HomePod last year but delayed the launch missing the holiday shopping season and giving Amazon and Google an even bigger lead. Apple has yet to announce a new release date for the device. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
