A few weeks back we reported the unfortunate news that US Customs had held shipments of HTC’s One X and EVO 4G LTE due to patent infringement. It was a first in the Android world, as Apple won a lawsuit proving that some HTC phones infringed on their patents. This led customs to hold HTC’s two new flagships as mentioned above, leading to a delay for the EVO and low stock for the One X.
It looks like HTC got itself out of this mess, as the handsets are now entering the US. HTC says that future shipments should pass without issue, and that a delay like this shouldn’t happen again. It’s good to hear that those anticipating the EVO can finally get one, along with the One X now being readily available. Now here’s the question: did this cost HTC sales, or make Apple look like even worse of a company?
