HTC phone imports held up over Apple disputeThe One X and Evo 4G LTE are being delayed indefinitely by U.S. Customs officials over patent infringement issues.

Apple's patent dispute with HTC reached a new level today with word that imports of HTC phones are being delayed by U.S. Customs officials.
The One X and Evo 4G LTE are being delayed indefinitely by U.S. Customs officials over unresolved patent infringement issues with Apple, HTC said, confirming an earlier report on The Verge.
"The U.S. 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," HTC said in a statement. "We believe we are in compliance with the ruling and HTC is working closely with Customs to secure approval."
CNET has also contacted Apple and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency for comment and will update this report when we hear more.
HTC was dealt a setback in December when the International Trade Commission, a federal agency with the power to enforce bans on products shipping to the U.S., ruled that HTC infringed on Apple's patent for data detection. The process allows a mobile device to recognize items like e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and addresses in text and automatically move them to a calendar, dialer, or mapping application.The SmartPhone Parade (2006-Now)
