Default Headphone jack on the bottom or on the top of the player?

I have a Walkman S618F with the headphone jack on the top of the player,
and I'm happy with that.

Now I see that the new A820/S630/S730 series have the headphone jack on the bottom of the players.

What do you prefer - top or bottom headphone jack - and why?

Bottom... if you have the player in your pocket, bottom means the player will face top down and sowhen you pick it up it will be the right way. if the jack is on the top, you have to turn it 180 deg if you pick it up. also, bottom jack means you can easily make docks

I thought the jack being on the top was best. But, as CptnO said, it's really more convenient on the bottom of the player and allows for more docking options. I've realised myself it's in the best position.

I would have liked the headphone jack to be on the top, I guess because I'm so use to my old cassette players to be like that. But I've already got use to my A818 with the headphone jack on the bottom.
