Back in December, the International Trade Commission found HTC guilty of infringing an Apple patent on so-called "data tapping" – the kind of technology, for example, that allows you to click on a phone number in the text of an email, and immediately place a call. The punishment: a ban on US sales of any handset that uses the aforementioned functionality. 

This week comes news that two HTC handsets, the HTC One X and HTC EVO 4G LTE, have been held up by US customs officials. "US availability of [the phones] has been delayed due to a standard US Customs review of shipments that is required after an ITC exclusion order," an HTC official said in a statement. "We believe we are in compliance with the ruling and HTC is working closely with customs to secure approval."
