Voice command localisation, TV content limitations, no HomeKit product. Not to say we don't have it here, but they don't sell it on their webstore unlike those country that selling or to sell HomePod.

In the end, we are not in their priority list. You could get an idea on which country are first to get newly launch product or pre-order (like iPhone). Until those countries gotten support, maybe, just maybe they will sell it here.

I am using one. They mainly sell it in countries with English as first language since English speaking Siri is somewhat having better support than the other languages. Only lately they start selling it in China and HK. It will be coming to Taiwan and Japan soon.

Singapore is sorta multi-lingua like us, which means our Siri request may consist of a mix of different languages. Currently the Singapore option in Siri only recognizes the accent. You can't, for example, request a song in Chinese or Malay/Indonesia.

I guess it's similar with Google/Amazon only selling only their smart speakers to select countries. Language issues & most services included only for US only

I'm using one since Apr 2018, the sound quality is surprisingly great.
because its new product line and i believe the production couldn't catch up with the demand, hence its only available for selected country.

I just got one yesterday. It's pretty impressive. I can talk to it from the top of my stairs or from the kitchen. No more carrying iPhone around the house.

I broke my Homepod, after plugging it in an unstable plug socket. No bass & sounds really weird. Anyone know where to repair? Apple MY won’t do it because it’s not sold here. I’m screwed.

I got the chance to experience the HomePod whilst in an Apple Store. I'm no audiophile, so I can't describe what I heard very well, but it sounded very.. full/rich? I'd certainly consider getting one when it's officially made available here.

Its already selling in Japan and Taiwan, perhaps its Apple marketing strategy.

That’s generic change that affects all countries.

but this is more on the Targeted countries for product release which to me is a bit strange.
