Question Battery Door cover

Hey everyone,

I just bought the Galaxy Nexus. I have a question in regards to the battery door. I have watched many reviews and read a few reviews on the GNex and they all mentioned that the battery door has sort of a rubberized texture to it so the phone won't easily slip out of your hands. The battery door I have is very slippery. It's pretty much the same as the SGS2. Because I have small hands, I don't have a strong grip on the phone and could easily send the phone flying to orbit! Is Samsung shipping out different battery doors now? Is there anyway I can find the one with the rubberized texture?
I do have a case for my phone. But I take the case off when I'm at home. I do that with all my phones. I like my phone naked when I'm at home.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

No, they haven't changed the back covers, as far as I know. If you have a diamond-like pattern on the back of the phone, that's the 'rubberized cover'.

It's only slightly rubberized. You have the standard.

Thanks for the response guys. I was under the impression that it had a "grippy" feel to it. Mine is very slippery. I do have the diamond like pattern.

No, I got the black one. That's why I thought the battery door was rubberized.
