Phantom context key pressesSupport

    I purchased a Galaxy S through Bell in Canada a few days ago and it's been great, except for an issue that started just this morning.

    The phone keeps bringing up the context menu at random when I have not hit the key to do so. Sometimes I can use it for ten minutes without an issue, other times it will flip on/off repeatedly ever few seconds for a 15 second period or so.

    This is definitely not an issue of me pressing the key by mistake; I can lay the phone on the table and it will trigger the key on/off on its own.

    I've tried:
    - Cleaning the screen several times
    - Rebooting
    - Deleting pretty much every app I downloaded
    - Total factory reset (from the boot menu)

    After the factory reset the problem still exists, which leads me to believe it may be a hardware issue. I haven't seen any other posts regarding this issue, has anyone seen something like this before?
