Both. Yes, the manufacturer probably does most of the work, but with a device like this, they are building to AT&T's spec.

It's up to AT&T to mandate a good browser, good messaging client, and good social networking features. If they were smart, they'd standardize this with a standard (good) software suite, at least for manufacturers that aren't stepping up on their own.

I think this inconsistency is why AT&T is adopting BREW MP. It will standardize the platform a bit more so AT&T can mandate a (specific) good messaging client, social networking client, etc. and manufacturers will be able to drop such software into their phones much more easily. theory. How well AT&T executes on this remains to be seen, of course.
