You do need root to uninstall system apps on any Android phone but rooting it is so easy anyway so shouldn't be an issue.
You can restore it too, just use the backup you created before uninstalling it!
Ah yeah, I have a rooted HTC Desire so I'm familiar with nandroid backups etc.. I thought you meant you could do it without rooting!
