This is the real shame with the HomePod because you could nearly justify paying over double the price of an Amazon Echo for the wonderful audio quality, if the speaker did everything else to a good standard.
If you haven't pre-ordered and you don't want to miss out on owning a HomePod straight away, then it's still possible to pick one up in-store. That should guarantee the HomePod will reach the homes of those who pre-ordered the device on tomorrow's launch day.
However we should point out that these are only orders for the online store, meaning that you could probably head on over to an Apple retail store and try your luck there. The speaker is available now from Apple.com for customers in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia, with the company confirming the device will additionally launch in to France and Germany "in the spring".
Still, not all is lost. Shortly after the same thing happened to Apple Australia's online store, leaving the U.S. as the only market in which the speakers were still available on launch day.
