HTC didn't wait long before it started tweaking some of its smartphones to get around the ITC ban on imports in the US. The bans were instituted on some HTC devices after Apple filed a complaint with the ITC. The import ban covered devices such as the One X and the Evo 4G LTE.

HTC was able last week to get a few handsets through customs, but it wasn't clear how many of the devices had been released. The Evo 4G LTE started shipping again last Thursday but the One X was still being blocked. HTC has officially announced today that its smartphones have been released and are now shipping.

HTC said that it has completed the review process with U.S. Customs, and the devices were released because they were found to comply with the ITC ruling. That means bulk shipments should be coming and HTC fans who have been salivating to get their hands on the new smartphones will soon be able to get their fix. The official HTC announcement is below.

HTC has completed the review process with US Customs and HTC devices have been released, as they are in compliance with the ITC's ruling. Future shipments should continue to enter the US and we are confident that we will soon be able to meet the demand for our products.
