Nokia Messaging Adds HTML Support

The long-awaited upgrade to Nokia Messaging was just released, The biggest improvement is the ability to view HTML emails, with a side benefit of kinetic scrolling through said emails. The sad part, however, is that there’s no kinetic scrolling for your non-HTML emails. Mind-boggling.
