HTC has announced that the U.S. shipments of the HTC One X and EVO 4G LTE have been delayed due to issues with customs inspections at the border.
In a statement released by HTC this evening, the company has announced that shipments of the One X and EVO 4G LTE have been delayed due to an ITC exclusion order. The official statement from the company says:
“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.” – HTC Spokesperson.
While HTC has nothing more to say on the subject at this time, it is believed by many that this has to do with a court order Apple won last year over an issue with hyperlinks in text messages. Although it is believed HTC has removed the feature, the order went into effect on April 19 and all shipments after that must be inspected.
There is no word on when the shipments will be released. We’ll bring you more information as we get it.
