HomePod preorders open in the US, UK, and Australia, includes removable 2m power cable

As expected, Apple’s new HomePod speaker is now on sale for preordering in the U.S., U.K., and Australia, with Feb. 9 shipping dates still available. Additional reports from 9to5Mac have also revealed that the HomePod includes a detachable color-matched two-metre power cable in the box, assuaging concerns from earlier reports that the speaker might use a fixed power cable that could be difficult to replace. HomePod is expected to be available for purchase from Apple retail stores and a wide variety of Apple authorized resellers on Feb. 9 in the U.S., U.K., and Australia, and is also expected to arrive in France and Germany sometime this spring.
