HTC EVO 4G LTE pre-orders to ship May 23rd according to Best Buy email
Best Buy is sending out emails to its customers who pre-ordered the HTC EVO 4G LTE. The email says that the device will be released on May 23rd which is 5 days after the expected May 18th launch date for the phone. The reason for the delay is that the U.S. Customs Department refuses to allow both the HTC EVO 4G LTE and AT&T's HTC One X to enter the States as both models are under review by the ITC based on possible infringement of an Apple patent.

Early Thursday morning, we passed along the interesting news that the two models held up at Customs had been shipped to the U.S. with a work around of Apple's patent. While HTC says it has nothing to announce in terms of a release date for the HTC EVO 4G LTE and a date when the HTC One X can ship again to AT&T, the hope is that the work around on the U.S. models are enough to allow both phones to reach their destination.

The AT&T version of the HTC One X has been a strong seller since its launch last week. On the carrier's web site, the phone is listed as being "sold out". The Customs hold-up can only exacerbate the out of balance Supply-Demand picture for the handset.
