In fact it is glossy plastic, but sony put a coating on it, that's why it looked rubberised.
On my phone the coating came loose after a few weeks. I tried to get it replaced but, they (Phone House Germany and there repair center) pretend I used chemicals on it, yeah right what should I do with chemicals on Holiday at Djerba
