Why Apple was doing its best to convince ITC that HTC was violating its patents we do not know. The fact is that the AT&T’s and Sprint’s versions of the HTC One X devices were banned and then held up by US customs officials.
The HTC Evo 4G LTE that was launched on May 18 had to be delayed for some time. Later we got news the smartphone appeared on Best Buy and will be available on sale on May 23. Unfortunately, we did not get any official statement if the smartphones were cleared from the government’s custody or not.
Still yesterday, we got news the devices are entering the US borders. This means the future shipments will not be delayed and the manufacturer will soon meet the demand in the US.
Those who follow the news about HTC and Apple most likely know that Apple used to claim HTC uses the same menu settings typical to Apple products. While ITC was making its decision, there was news HTC’s aforementioned smartphones come with another menu.
T-Mobile’s online ordered smartphones did not appeared on the hands of the users in time and this made us think there was a problem about which we did not know.
Do you think HTC has really violated Apple’s patents? However, some HTC Evo 4G LTE smartphones were delivered to consumers. They were told to come packed with Simultaneous Voice and Data out of box.
Currently, the pre-ordered smartphones are being shipped to the consumers.
