New HTC handsets import delayed by Apple

Apple likes legal fights. After all the court room battles and companies that they have sued, this is the only conclusion I can arrive at. Now I’m not saying that companies out there haven’t deserved to be sued before. There have been several times that Apple was right in taking a business to court. But it seems – this time around – that HTC is getting the bad end of the deal.

A story from the folks at tells that apparently the HTC One X and Evo 4G LTE devices are facing delays due to an International Trade Commission ruling in Apple’s favor. As upset as this must be making HTC, the company seems civil enough in a statement it released on the situation.

“The US availability of the HTC One X and HTC EVO 4G LTE has been delayed due to a standard U.S. Customs review of shipments that is required after an ITC exclusion order. We believe we are in compliance with the ruling and HTC is working closely with Customs to secure approval.”

I know many people are looking to get their hands on the HTC One X and Evo 4G LTE so hopefully the delay isn’t too extensive.

What are your thoughts on the situation? Has Apple gone to far by delaying new phones from coming to the US? Or are they right? Let us know in the comments down below.

    Apple is sue happy, exactly what I find to be wrong with the U. S. as a whole, as a citizen, I’ve seen how people and companies sur each other to get rich, or get richer, and It sickens me. Apple is insanely prosperous, I have no problem with that, but it they sue over petty issues to block a new competition. That to me is ridiculous, and I hope karma comes back and bites Apple hard in its pompous ass!
