  • Snap CEO, Evan Spiegel, announced that the company has sold “over 150,000 units” of their Spectacles.

    During the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit he revealed that the glasses has exceeded the 100,000 units Snap was expecting, as well as selling more units than the original iPod did in its first year.

    “Our view is that hardware is going to be an important vehicle for delivering our customer experience maybe in a decade,” said Spiegel. “But if we believe it’s going to be important in a decade, we don’t want to be starting a decade from now.”

    As well as this, he also touched on Snap’s decision to go public this year.

    “I think investors are fearful, and fear is a powerful motivator – they’re fearful we’ll never be profitable, or they’re fearful that competition will kill us or something like that,” he said. “But I think those are kind of normal fears for any start-up – and the really successful companies just grow through that. And that’s why we’ve just tried to stay focused on the business this year and execute and deliver results.”
