Using Apple's decisions to determine what is/isn't popular in the mobile
world is not really the greatest idea. This is after all the company that
neglected (and is still refusing) to include flash support on their phone.
This is also the company that concluded no one sends messages to multiple
recipients and no one likes to customize their phones. A quick search will
reveal that a huge chunk of consumers disagree with those decisions.

MMS is alive and well amongst the masses and email will only replace it when
all phones have push email capabilities with little to no packet data
