Apple gets U.S. Customs to halt HTC phones into U.S.

HTC One X held in U.S. Customs over Apple Patent Ruling

"The launch of Sprint's flagship EVO 4G LTE has been delayed indefinitely and supply of AT&T's flagship HTC One X will be constrained as a result of ongoing patent disputes between HTC and Apple.

Sprint was scheduled to launch the EVO 4G LTE, a customized version of the One X, on May 18th for $199.99 on contract. AT&T made the One X available earlier this month, however the device is now listed as out of stock on AT&T’s website and supply will be constrained until shipments clear Customs.

The import delays mark the first time one of Apple’s numerous patent complaints against rivals in the U.S. has paid off.

I don't see anything so "special" that apple is doing with their phones or their OS. I would side with HTC on this one for sure. The phone OS is very similar to the Windows UI that has been around for years.

The joke is that Apple will sue anyone as long as it is a phone with an interactive display
