    In the interests of saving a bit of cash, and not really wanting to wait 1-2 months for the Sensation (as I've almost pulled all my hair out with my current phone) I'm going for the HTC Desire HD.

    If I'm right, you can now upgraded them to Android 2.3?

    Still 2.2.1 with T-Mobile, so not everyone will be able to get 2.3. It depends on your network.

    I'm on O2 but you can't get the Desire HD direct from them so I will have to go via Carphone Warehouse or Phones 4 U. A quick Google search showed that from suppliers like these, the phones have generic firmwares so can be upgraded, and will receive 2.3.

    There is a rumour going about another thread that HTC's version of 2.3 includes proxy support: @Rawns: I put to you a mission to confirm or deny this rumour

    +1 to that - although Oxygen is a great ROM too... (still no built in proxy support like Cyanogen though!)

    Well, I upgraded yesterday evening to Android 2.3, and have had a good nosy through all the menus, settings etc and cannot find any proxy related area. I've only had the phone for 6 days, so if it's there, I may not be looking in the right areas, but it does not appear to have proxy support.
