    my iphone 4 speaker is on the right of the home button (when looking at the screen)

    but on my 3gs it was on the left?

    Yeah I noticed in the Keynote that they identified the speaker being on the other side to the 3GS and earlier models. It's welcome in my mind, because I used to rotate the phone landscape with the home button on the right, then find myself covering up the speaker with my hand.

    Exactly. Tons of games play it this way and it makes your hand cover the speaker. Love the change.

    Have Apple finally moved the speaker the other side? Thank god. I hate the way it is placed on the earlier models. If you play a game that plays in landscape only once way (with the home button on the right) you end up covering the speaker. And if you moved you hand it was then uncomfortable to play the game. Finally! :D

    Just when they finally move the speaker and Street Fighter 4 rotates the other way so I still cover the speaker!!!

    It makes more sense when you consider where the logic board is in the iPhone...
