Looks like I'm not getting a new phone tomorrow. Apple has accused HTC of violating patents and as a result the Evo 4G LTE is being held by US customs indefinitely. My current phone is on life support and I can't use it for extended periods or it will overheat and shutdown. #firstworldproblems
They're the first devices to face an import delay at US Customs for potentially infringing an Apple patent.

"overheat and shutdown" Technology is so cool. New improved ways of screwing up.
Sounds like Apple just doesn't want the competition of the XYZ KBR MNO 4 16YST alphabet soup HTC phone.
Rumor is that the patent they violated is where a webpage renders a phone number that you can click to dial.
I would have thought they would claim a hardware problem, not something that is largely software driven.
