    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 not too sure about this but...

    I think one is a speaker and the other is a microphone.

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

    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.

    One is a speaker with HD SURROUND SOUND 7.1 BUILT IN WITH REAL LIVE ACTUAL SOUND (so crisp, so clear.) , and the other is the same mic as in your friendly neighborhood MacBook, Pro, Air, and iMacs.

    .....Oh, and the other speaker is behind the keyboard, thats only mono.

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