It’s a shame that the HTC EVO 4G LTE for Sprint and the HTC One X are being held up at Customs until a review is completed of these two devices as result of an ITC ruling.  The HTC EVO 4G LTE was scheduled to launch tomorrow across Sprint and other third party retailers, but the date is going to pass as Sprint informs its customers of the issue at Customs.  Unfortunately, Best Buy has been heavily promoting its pre-order promotion for the EVO 4G LTE, but those orders will clearly not be delivered on time.

Today, however, Best Buy has been reportedly emailing customers who pre-ordered the EVO 4G LTE saying it would ship on May 23.  Now, there isn’t an official post from Best Buy, Sprint, or HTC on the shipment matter, but the email screen below (received by AndroidCentral) does look legitimate.

I imagine we will find out in a couple of days whether the HTC EVO 4G LTE will, indeed, ship to Best Buy customers who pre-ordered the device.
