If you've been following the saga of the HTC One X and EVO 4G LTE's U.S. Customs delay, then you'll know that both handsets have finally cleared Customs after being stopped there for a couple of weeks. Sprint this morning provided an update on the situation as it pertains to the EVO 4G LTE, saying that it expects shipments of the device to begin entering the U.S. in the coming days. There's still no word on a new launch date, but Sprint promises that it'll share more information as soon as it can. The carrier's full statement:

"While Sprint customers who pre-ordered their HTC EVO 4G LTE received their device last week, Sprint continues to wait for our full inventory from HTC.

We recently learned that HTC devices have been released by U.S. Customs. We expect shipments of HTC EVO 4G LTE to enter the U.S. in the next few days. An exact availability date for HTC EVO 4G LTE will be communicated as soon as possible.

We’ll continue updating this post as we have new information to share.

Thank you everybody for your interest and continued patience."

Customers that pre-ordered the EVO 4G LTE have been enjoying their new handset for a few days now, but those that didn't take part in the pre-sale have been sitting and waiting for the EVO 4G LTE's national launch to be rescheduled so that they can get a shot at HTC and Sprint's latest, too. Now that the devices have been given the green light by Customs, here's to hoping that an actual EVO 4G LTE launch isn't too far out. If you're patiently waiting for the launch of the EVO 4G LTE, you can find Aaron's two-part video review here and here to help pass the time until more information comes out. And for those of you that've already gotten hold of your EVO 4G LTE, what do you think so far?
