Welcome to the 21st century; HTML email is here to stay. One function of the BB is to be an extension of your desk / laptop / whatever ... where I'm pretty sure even you receive HTML email.
Every other major playing in the smartphone arena has support for HTML email; its time RIM did the same.
If our data connections were limited to 14.4 kbit I'm pretty sure we wouldn't see HTML email. There are more bits now; they're gonna get used.
