US customs continue inspection of HTC handsets

Some HTC handsets, potentially including the One X and Evo 4G LTE, are slowly making their way through US Customs, the company reports. A recent update on the HTC corporate website notes that some handsets are passing Customs inspections, despite an International Trade Commission (ITC) ban on the devices entering the US.

The update, appearing yesterday and suggesting potential further updates, states that "each imported HTC model must be reviewed by Customs" and would be released after completion of the inspection. Although the update mentions the release of "some" models to carriers, it does not mention which handsets and how many.

The ITC placed import restrictions on the One X and Evo 4G LTE after courts determined that HTC violated several Apple patents related to messaging and browser apps, and came into force on April 19 following the verdict in December.
