iPhone 3G only one speaker working?

When I play music or anything only one of the speakers on the bottom works? Is this meant to happen? or is only one a speaker?

There's only one speaker. On the other side is the microphone.

I'm pretty sure, but I could be wrong, that one is a microphone. I guess someone else may have a better idea.

Your all wrong. ONE is a speaker, and the OTHER ONE is the mic..

I cannot believe this still comes up.

To further sledge hammer this, having 2 speakers that close together would be pointless since you wouldn't really be able to get any perception of stereo separation.

One's the speaker the other is the copy/paste button that doubles as a video camera.

...and a microphone.

Actually one is the speaker and the other is a coolant refill port to keep the phone cool.
