HTC Announces End To Customs Shenanigans, Clear Sailing For Future Shipments


After getting news of HTC Android shipments being held-up in customs on their into the US, we heard from the manufacturer that progress had been made towards resolving the situation, and sure enough, eventually saw the EVO 4G LTE start making it into the hands of customers. Today, HTC is announcing a full resolution of these import issues.

Last week, HTC released a statement reading, “some of our products have passed the review and have been delivered to our telecoms operators’ clients in the US”. As a result, we could see that the tide was turning in HTC’s favor, but it wasn’t clear at the time just what had been cleared, what hadn’t, and how long it might be until all of its products were released.

Today’s comments from HTC indicate that its Androids that had been facing this delay have now passed scrutiny under the ITC’s ruling, and we should be returning to business as usual. The company notes that “future shipments should continue to enter the US” and that it soon expects to get deliveries back up to the level it would like, adding that it’s “confident that we will soon be able to meet the demand for our products.”

Sounds good to us. We knew HTC would get this all sorted out one way or another, but it’s good to hear that it found a resolution so quickly, instead of things dragging on for months.
