International Trade Commission is checking them for patent ruling compliance. Unfortunately HTC didn't say which devices were getting through, or how many.

International Trade Commission's customs embargo to lift. According to TmoNews, customers who ordered an HTC Amaze 4G online are being told that due to "an unforeseen issue with receiving the product from the manufacturer", their phones are being indefinitely delayed. The delay is serious enough that T-Mobile recommends going with another phone entirely.
HTC One X or EVO 4G LTE in the United States, you're currently out of luck: the ITC has impounded shipments of both phones in US customs. HTC confirmed that this was due to a an ITC ruling, which can only be Apple's successful lobbying of the commission based on its linking software patent. It's been confirmed that both phones work around the feature in question.
International Trade Commission file levied against HTC phones for violating one of Apple's software patents? You know, the one that HTC complied with by disabling some of the native functionality of its phones? Yeah, it's back. An HTC official reported that shipments of the AT&T HTC One X and the HTC EVO 4G LTE are being stopped at US customs, and reports indicate that the inspections are to verify that the phones are complying with the ITC's ruling in December.
HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE looks like a decent upgrade to the former Incredible phones, but after getting our hands on it at CTIA, we can say it's just not up to par with the One X or One S. If you're holding out for either to come to Verizon in the near future, you can stop waiting. A Verizon representative told PCMag that Verizon currently has no One series phones in the pipeline. You see this? This is my sad face.
some users of the white version of the HTC One X have found that the blue dye used in their blue jeans seems particularly attracted to the finish on HTC's latest flagship.
ePrice found that if they paired certain Bluetooth headsets with the HTC One X, they could operate the shutter mechanism on the camera by pressing button combinations on the headset. It's a useful little trick, and one that's strangely absent from all the HTC documentation we've seen thus far. It's possible, but not confirmed, that the trick could work with the other HTC One phones as well.
arbitrary locked bootloader on the HTC One X, but at least they can do some basic modifications: root has been achieved. XDA Developers member Kenneth Penn has posted a one-click root solution for the LTE version of the One X, and it should also work on the phone headed for Canadian carrier Rogers as well. You'll need a Windows PC and a basic understanding of Android, but as far as root process go, it's relatively easy.
HTC One X is now shipping, and should be showing up in retail stores right now. The phone is going for $199.99 on a new two year contract or $549.99 without - notably lower than other high-end Android phones. The AT&T version forgoes NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 for a Snapdragon S4, and adds LTE connectivity on AT&T's small but growing network.
Galaxy S III announcement to talk about. But we'll definitely be talking about that first. Android Community was present at Samsung's London event to bring you all the juicy details, which you can find in our wrap-up feature. Long story short: the Galaxy S III is big, powerful, crammed with custom software... and a little on the bland side as far as design goes.
