Silent Mode reversed


Android Expert
Has anyone noticed that when you hold the power button, the Silent Mode will be listed as ON when the volume is on? Isn't this backwords? Then to silent the phone, I tap the Silent mode, and it switches to OFF and then the phone is silent (with the (/) through a music note in the taskbar)

It's a bit confusing at first glance but the "ON" part is to tell you that sound is on, and tapping that button will make the phone go silent (so sound would be off).

It reads:

When Volume is up:
Sound Mode
Sound is ON

When Volume is off/silent:
Sound Mode
Sound is OFF
