Ed did the math. HomePod does better than expected.
If we look at the lies, damned lies, and statistics a slightly different way, then we get a slightly different picture. HomePod was priced at $350 or about fives times the average Amazon Alexa or Google home device.
In terms of revenue, that means HomePod is on similar footing to Amazon Echo. 1.4-million HomePods at $350 each is $490-million in quarterly revenue. 6.6-million Amazon Echos at $50 is $330-million. 5.6-million Google Home is only $280-million.
We can argue with the numbers but all of them make HomePod look pretty good.
