As noted by Bloomberg, The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) has blocked Apple’s request for an emergency ban on U.S. imports of HTC devices.

Earlier this month, Apple filed the request for the immediate ban related to an Apple patent for parsing out phone numbers within text in its mobile device operating system, iOS.

Apple specifically named the fairly new and notable HTC One S, One X, Flyer, and EVO 4G in the ban request, though all HTC products running Google’s Android operating system are covered. In May, select HTC phones were temporarily banned from being imported in the U.S.

Notably, today’s ruling comes just days after Apple succesfully got the court to place a preliminary injunction in the United States on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone.
