Boomsound is the speakers, not the microphones.

ST Micro has already announced that they will be contesting this. They didn't just think on a whim that they were free to sell this.

ST Micro has also begun to work on an equivalent replacement part that wouldn't contain Nokia IP. Not sure if I can find details on the intellectual property allocations involved (or if I'll find them first, expect leaks lol) but if/when I do, I'll post back.

HTC hasn't said what quantity they have for the part on hand.

HTC injunction - only in the land of Nokia.
ST Micro injection - worldwide shipping of the part.

TL/DR - There are 3 dimensions to microphone part supply that are fluid at this point.
