AT&T’s HTC One X and Sprint’s HTC Evo 4G LTE were blocked by ITC — it had considered Apple’s application, which claimed the Taiwanese company infringed its patents in regard to menu settings. Everything seems OK now as HTC has announced several devices are already in the hands of end-users. We assumed it would be so as HTC changed the menu settings before launching the phones. But if the same is not done for T-Mobile’s HTC-bound smartphones, then the magenta carrier might have problems.
Those consumers who have ordered the HTC Amaze 4G devices online might either get their handsets late or never. The official statement reads:
Dear T-Mobile Customer,
Thank you for your recent order. We wanted to let you know that your order for the HTC Amaze has been delayed due to an unforeseen issue with receiving the product from the manufacturer. At this time, we do not have an estimate as to when the product will be available. Because we don’t know when the product will be available, we recommend that you choose an alternate device. Please call us at 1-800-672-5390 if you wish to do this and one of our agents will be happy to assist you with finding another device that will meet your needs. If you do not select another device, the Amaze will ship to you as soon as product becomes available.
We recommend the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G as a replacement. This device is free for you with no rebate required… We sincerely apologize for the delay. Thank you for being a T-Mobile customer. We truly appreciate your business.
Thank you, T-Mobile Customer Care.
We also assume that T-Mobile offers a Samsung handset as a replacement and not the HTC One S. Accordingly, all HTC handsets are under danger, and the Taiwanese company should simply change the software to avoid further incidents.
