    Well, its pretty uncool how I can get the iPhone fanboi's taking the piss because I cant do the very basic things such as use a proxy!?!? Or do NTLM authentication. It means im completly locked out of my network at work, I work in IT and just find it shocking that a mainstream OS such as Android can miss such fundamental feature's of corporate networking.

    Rant over. What id like to know is if anyone has a clue about when this might get sorted, anyone know if 3 (gingerbread) might somehow get this addition? I seriously hope so...

    Cheers.


    P.S. I think this is in the right category?

    Happy to add my annoyance to yours, for all the good it seems it will do. I discovered this when i first got my phone, thought by now it would be fixed. It's so basic!
