On the buttons, unlike Apple, Android devices come with a wide range of interfaces and hardware that need to be consider. See my device has Menu, Home, Back, Search, Directional Pad with Center Button, Volume Keys, Call and Hang Up.
Some of my keys are hotkeys, so if I press them in a certain sequence or together they do something else.
