HTC Amaze 4G online orders indefinitely delayed

HTC Amaze 4G online orders indefinitely delayed
As the results of these patent battles start to come to fruition, this has been the week of delays. We might be seeing yet another casualty of the US Customs’ hold on HTC devices.

Customers who order the HTC Amaze 4G from T-Mobile’s website are receiving an email notifying them of a delay. The letter states that the “order for the HTC Amaze has been delayed due to an unforeseen issue with receiving the product from the manufacturer.” It goes on to say that there is not an estimated time as to when the product will be available and that T-Mobile recommends selecting a different device. Finally, it recommends the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G as a replacement, which can’t be going over well over at HTC.

It is not immediately clear if the issue with the Amaze 4G is, in fact, due to the issues stemming from the ITC’s ruling, but based on the vague language and no ETA, it sure seems that way. Oddly enough, you can still order the device from T-Mobile's website and they haven't posted any warnings about delays on the product page. You can read the letter in its entirety over at the source link below.

Ironically, I doubt that a delay/ban is going to cause anyone who was going to buy the HTC handsets to all-of-a-sudden go out and buy an iPhone. More likely, they will be pissed off and make a point of buying some other non-iDevice. Sounds like a pyrrhic victory for Apple to me.

no, you're an idiot because you're defending these sh!tty business practices. Instead of spending money/time moving forward and trying to outperform the competition, Apple has decided to simply try and hold everyone back. That is the tactic of a company that is either out of ideas or simply can't adapt, Apple should be better than that.

Apple is more of a terrorism thing........Just look at all the foxcon workers that have died under their rule lol

Plus there are all of the Foxconn workers who were considering suicide but were unable to jump because of the nets that were put in place. The nets don't change the fact of terrorism, they just make it harder to act against the terrorism. Kind of like a calf in a veal box - there isn't much the little calf can do to protest being force-fed and not able to run around before being slaughtered so some consumer can have veal.

competition suprs innovation. All these patent wars are going to slow all of this down. And you sir are in idiot because you cant even speak proper english on a device that has spell check. And reading some of your old posts it seems like you love to hop around. And its not that these two companies are not competitive, they are slowing competition down. And lets be honest. WP7 isnt exactly the biggest kid on the block..

You an idiot because you don't even know what the patent is about. The iPhone does not even use this patent. It is for the desktop OS for Mac. It is not copying anything because for all we know the program code is different, but the patent is for an ideal.

The ITC has a month since April 19 to investigate one solitary software feature. They fail to do so, even until after the Evo 4G LTE's release date. PhoneArena, Phonedog, and Engadget all review virtually every single detail of the Evo 4G LTE up to a week before it's commercially available. QED, gadget review sites should run the world.

Android's copying ways are catching up to them and their OEM's. Goo day for innovation today with this and the possible ban on Samsung tablets.

Apple is so pathetic. Stop releasing the same phone each year and beat the competition, not try to ban it.

Well as always the first thing I notice as ALWAYS android fanboys defending theft till their death. But what can you expect from a crowd of people who hack there phones to gain FREE access to paid features, illegally download music that does not belong to them, illegally download paid apps for free Instead of supporting the hard working dev community and the list goes on. And the same group that hates discriminates and attempts to demoralize an apple user simply because we are willing to legally download music and pay for our apps. I see it on this forum daily even if a new user post something as simple as I prefer apple over android the attacks begin. Also everyone blames apple for the talks of subsidys going away well how bout the thought that a new android coming out weekly may be what's causing issues with subsidys it's not like these androids are easy on subsidys and with the sheer amounts of them out there on shelves unsold as the new models just keep churning out. The biggest issue I have as a whole is android users are becoming just as bad as jahovas witness's simply because phone choice boils down to what each individual wants but everyone with an android must absolutely and forcibly shove the ignorant heavily biased and more often then not vocally violent opinion down everyone's throats. Y'all always bring up that apple users are sheep wow now that's the pot calling the kettle black if I've ever seen it.

Could you be anymore ignorant and show exactly how blind you are? How many people jailbreak their iphones and and use illegal music on their iphones? You want to claim all android users hack and use illegal means to get free stuff? I am running STOCK android ICS and i have BOUGHT every app and music that is on my phone. So kindly shut the hell up.

I cant believe idiots are actually against competition. You realize that means your precious iPhone will be high in price with no real upgrades. Oh right you are already used to that.
