    Can anyone confirm the Desire has the same Broadcom a/b/g/n chipset as the Nexus One?
    If so I will ask HTC to include the firmware to enable a/n in a future software update. 802.11n is really useful in this weather for browsing in the garden because of the range and speed.

    It appears to can deliver a and n. Good news. Maybe HTC agreed to not enable it for 6 months or something to make the N1 look better (on paper).
    In fact the other day I rooted my Desire and then installed DeFrost 1.8.

    But I really missed Sense. Plain Android is very bland (although I like the music app). No wonder Google are now focused on improving the UI with Gingerbread.
    Anyway I had a and n for a few hours. I then installed the 1.21.45.2 RUU and its like brand new.
    Hopefully HTC will sort this out.
