Imports of HTC smartphones slowly resume

According to a recent post from CNET  . . . Phones held up over patent issues with Apple are being released after U.S. Customs inspections, the handset maker says.

After a patent dispute with Apple held up imports of some of its smartphones, HTC says its phones are beginning to trickle through U.S. Customs.

It's unknown whether the One X or Evo 4G LTE -- the first two phones put in limbo by Customs officials last week over unresolved patent infringement issues with Apple -- are among those being released.

Each model must be inspected by Customs and will be released once the agency completes its inspection and approves its release, HTC said today in a statement. "Some models have gone through inspection and been released to our carriers customers," HTC said. "We don't have the status of each specific device model at this time, but we are working closely with Customs."

Yep, just a matter of time. Currently it says the following, "Some of our products have passed the review and have been delivered to our telecoms operators’ clients in the US". Whether its the EVO or not bodes well for all.
