The tiny nubs on the back prevent the phone from slipping around and improves loudspeaker performance.

I got my Nexus 4 weeks ago without numbs. When I found out felt pretty p***ed off. When its on a desk or table the sounds are 90% muffled! I phoned Google today and I decided to play dumb (like a comment I had read suggested). But no. She said that there was nothing that they could do to ensure I received a Nexus 4 with the nubs. Now im forced to buy a cover for it overwise i cant hear my phone ringing !

update* ive called and asked for a replacement, dont know if im gonna get the nubs/nipples but i hope i do ! fingers crossed and will report back and let you guys know. If anyone has done this already and got the newer version with it on there please let me know if i have anything else to look forward to !!

I got my Nexus yesterday and i agree with the above observations (in the US).. the other thing i want to add is that the box looks different too. it is plain black with Nexus word on it, where the old box was much more colorful with a picture of a device!
