HTC One X, EVO 4G LTE get unbanned by customs

US Customs lifts ban on HTC handsets, should hit US shelves shortly

The previous US Customs and Border Protection ban over the HTC One X and EVO 4G LTE has been lifted, after the customs review went into effect on April 19 preventing the sale of the two smartphones. AT&T did receive some units, and last week, Customs released a handful of the units to carriers for sale in anticipation of the release.

HTC e-mailed Wired saying:


HTC has completed the review process with US Customs and HTC devices have been released, as they are in compliance with the ITC's ruling. Future shipments should continue to enter the U.S. and we are confident that we will soon be able to meet the demand for our products.


HTC stated that before the phones arrived that they had already fixed the link patent issue to sidestep their ban, with Customs officials inspecting the modified phones to make sure they complied with the ITC's ruling. No ETA has been given on when we should expect full retail availability.
