Not really. I have seen no stats that support this.

MMS is in fact so unpopular that even Apple decided to drop it 
altogether on the iPhone.

But i agree, it is used. This might justify some work on this topic in 
the future. But not right now.

Sadly not (yet). But i can see a change happening here.
Internet[tm] becomes more and more relevant on phones. The iPhone leads 
this trend with many users and other phones don't fall short on this 
front too.

PS: As indicated in this thread. MMS seems to be only a question of 
working GPRS with QTopia. So expect MMS to work soon... ;)
