If custom ROMs are your wish I would avoid HTC phones, particularly older ones. Due to HTC's notoriously poor release cycles support for them tends to either take ages or die pretty quickly. Although if all you want to do is have a play with Android have you considered a whole different class of device in the Nexus 7? Very powerful hardware and I believe it's in your price range
I want a phone actually.
And no, it's 200€, that's new however, might sell for a little less when buying it used.
It's a fun idea, but I don't think I'd enjoy it as much as a phone, especially as this would be highly redundant seeing how I'll get an iPad next year anyways.

An used Nexus S should be pretty cheap now, considering that there are two newer Nexus phones out already.
It's not the fastest phone around (single core, 512MB) but it's still smooth on JB.
Yeah, I thought about the Nexus S, too...
A close contender from the little I dug into its specs so far.
I guess I'll wait and see what kinds of offers there will be on ebay past Christmas and go from there.
Maybe I'll get some unexpected money from a job or something and I'll go with a Galaxy S3 mini even haha.
