Button Confusion

I’m seriously thinking about getting a new phone and have pretty much narrowed it down to the Samsung Nexus S (on the left) and the Samsung Epic (on the right).

In comparing the two phones, I noticed the navigation buttons are in different orders even though they both operate the same operating system and made by the same manufacturer, but I can’t think of a logical reason why.

    I think it may have to do with most people being right handed and, that the model on the right is most often used horizontally. And let's not forget the "Why not?" factor.

    I have been trying to get my wife to upgrade her HTC Hero… let us know what you settle on, especially the battery life. I played with the Nexus S at Best buy the other day and was impressed with how zippy the Gingerbread OS ran (2.3). Either phone seems pretty cool, will come down to your preferences.

    You'll get used to the navigation buttons either way. I'd go for the Nexus S just to be first with OS upgrades and the true Google experience. I've got a Galaxy S and while the hardware is ridonkulous, TouchWiz isn't exactly knocking my socks off.

    What about the iPhone?
