HTC smartphones pass U.S. Customs inspection

The U.S. Customs inspection had previously caused delays in HTC smartphone shipments

HTC said on Wednesday its newest smartphones models had all passed a required U.S. Customs review, clearing device shipments to the country after they were previously delayed because of the inspection.

The Taiwanese smartphone vendor completed the review process with U.S. customs, and the devices were found to be in compliance with an International Trade Commission (ITC) ruling, HTC said in a Taiwan Stock Exchange filing.

"Future shipments should continue to enter the U.S. and we are confident that we will soon be able to meet the demand for our products," the company added.

Earlier this month, the Taiwanese smartphone vendor said its HTC One X and HTC EVO 4G LTE devices would see delays in availability in the U.S. resulting from an ITC ruling in December that found the company to be in infringement of Apple patents.

As part of the ITC ruling, HTC was required to clear the import of its new devices through a required U.S. Customs inspection, to ensure the smartphones were not in violation of using the patented technology.

On May 20, HTC said that certain models of its smartphones had passed U.S. Customs, without specifying which devices, allowing for some of the company's device shipments to reach carrier customers.

AT&T is selling the HTC One X, while Sprint is selling the HTC EVO 4G LTE.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
