    Best Buy Email Suggests the HTC EVO 4G LTE May Skirt By US Customs to Arrive May 23


    There are a couple of pieces of new intel that may be a bright spot for HTC. Their newest problem is that two of their most popular new flagship devices, the One X and the Sprint version of that, the EVO 4G LTE, have been held up by U.S. Customs because of an ITC import ban from December due to an infringement on a patent from Apple. We shared this with you previously, but new info has come to light suggesting that HTC may be able to get buy afterall, and bring the phones to the U.S., even if they will be a little bit late.

    First, according to a new report from SlashGear, these two HTC phones actually do not infringe upon the Apple patent. Apparently, HTC purposefully excluded the feature from the U.S. version of these phones that would cause any infringement in the first place. Apparently, the International version still has the infringement, but for some reason the phone is being held up at U.S. Customs to make sure the issue is resolved.

    The second bit of news, seems to indirectly confirm the first bit of news. Best Buy recently sent out an email to Sprint customers who pre-ordered the HTC EVO 4G LTE. In the email, they indicated that the phone has been delayed, but that it will now arrive on May 23rd, instead of May 18th. This is a mere 5 day delay, and seems to point to the likelihood that the phones will make it through Customs afterall. You can see a picture of the email above.

    Thanks to our tipster, RobKort, for the Best Buy part of this story!
