HTC EVO 4G LTE appears to have cleared US Customs [Updated]

Us-customsYesterday, HTC announced that some of its products have now been cleared for entry into the United States after successfully passing a US Customs review. This comes after news that the release of the HTC EVO 4G LTE would be delayed due to a customs review, and that new shipments of the HTC One X on AT&T were also temporarily stopped.

While the EVO 4G LTE was not mentioned by name in this report, we are still fairly confident that it will be available soon, perhaps on the previously-announced and subsequently-retracted May 23 released date. However, until Sprint makes an official announcement, we cannot be certain.

HTC successfully dodged Apple's claim of copyright infringement by changing the functionality of links that appear in text messages or emails, and creating a new App associations menu in the settings. Keep checking back for updates on the new release date once more information is known.

Update: HTC just released the following statement to some media outlets:

Each imported HTC model must be reviewed by Customs and will be released once Customs officials have completed the inspection. Some models have gone through inspection and been released to our carrier customers. We don't have the status of each specific device model at this time, but we are working closely with Customs. We remain confident that this issue will be resolved soon.
