Kindle DX button question

I just purchased a new Kindle DX and I really like it so far. I am on my third book already.

One thing that I have noticed is that the next page button doesn't sit flat with the surface of the device. All of the other buttons seem level with the bezel but the next page button is angled in slightly, with the inside edge a little bit below the bezel surface. The button also seems a little harder to press.

I am wondering if this is normal. I can see how it might be necessary to make that button feel a little different from the others since it will be pressed thousands of times, but if my button is already slightly defective I am concerned due to how often it will be used. (Especially since there is only one page forward button!)

The next page button on my DX is slightly off level - hasn't affected its function at all.

Thanks for the information. I didn't think it was a big deal but I didn't want to get stuck with a broken page button after the warranty was up and I had done 100,000 page changes!
