HTC One X, EVO 4G LTE held at customs over Apple patents

Whoa. The super-cool HTC One X and EVO 4G LTE are facing import delays by U.S. Customs due to potential infringements of Apple’s patents, The Verge reports.

The report does a good job of explaining what the dispute is about but HTC is confident that the move shouldn’t impact the long-term availability of these devices. A spokesperson e-mailed us the following quote:

“The US availability of the HTC One X and HTC EVO 4G LTE has been delayed due to a standard U.S. Customs review of shipments that is required after an ITC exclusion order. We believe we are in compliance with the ruling and HTC is working closely with Customs to secure approval. The HTC One X and HTC EVO 4G LTE have been received enthusiastically by customers and we appreciate their patience as we work to get these products into their hands as soon as possible.”

So, were you lucky enough to pick up your AT&T One X already?

    in the words of Florida Evans…”Damn Damn Daaaammmn!”  I want my new EVO!

  • Here we go again.. I don’t really care if that is how their business really works but I think Apple is too selfish.
