HTC gets all clear on smart phones from U.S. Customs
Officials from the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer, HTC, have confirmed recently that some of its latest smart phone models have been given the all clear on compliance by U.S. Customs, which means that shipments into the United States can continue and consumer demand for the devices can be met.
Big delays had been caused previously with regards to shipments as a result of the U.S. Customs inspection, which was a review to ensure that the devices were in compliance with an International Trade Commission (ITC). Now that the all clear has been given, shipments can get underway of the HTC One X and HTC EVO 4G LTE devices.
After announcing that it had been given the green light, HTC released a statement confirming: "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."
The delays with the smart phones were caused after an ITC ruling in December that found the company to be in infringement of Apple patents. As a result of this, HTC had to clear its new devices through U.S. Customs so that checks could be made to ensure patented technology was not being used in the devices.
