I know from using the Instinct and now the Touch Pro that they have two different system calls for the buttons, a press call and a release call. I suspect most touch phones have a similar situation. Could probably verify it with your own by pressing a button holding it for a few seconds then releasing it. If the button waits until you release it to show the released state, launch an app or perform it's function, then it has two system calls. One for the press state and one for the release state.
If the button reverts back to it's unpressed state while your still holding it, then there is just one system call.
Hope that makes sense as well.
