I have one of the original N4's when they were released, yellow screen and defective charger. I got an RMA N4 and it looks like they added little nubs to the bottom. Just an FYI

It's nothing major. But the back plate can somewhat be more easier to remove.

Is it just me or is the headphone jack next to the speaker grill in this photo?

Interesting touch, and very smart actually given how many people had their backs crack just from temperature variations on whatever surface they put their Nexus 4 down on. Hopefully that lifts the glass off any surface a bit. Flip side is that looks like it'd be a fitment problem for most cases on the market already.

It's not to cool down the glass, is to keep free the sound from the speaker that was getting blocked when you had the device on a flat surface.

They probably have a whole variety of reasons. IMO raising the speaker off flat surfaces would be a perfectly good reason because it's completely muffled when you put the phone down on its back. They wouldn't change the hardware just for that, but it'd certainly help.
