Neo doesn't have keys dedicated to anything except turning it on and off.  
A touch screen is a versatile controller with areas assigned to different  
features at different times, with no part of it being dedicated to  
anything in particular. So it cannot be said that Neo has a control  
dedicated to audio playing.
