    I bought a GSM battery cover off Ebay for my Verizon Nexus hoping to ditch all the Verizon branding. It doesnt fit.

    The tabs are a slightly different style and size and at least 1 tab is in a different spot.

    Its to bad because the GSM cover has a nice "rubbery" feel to it rather than the slick back that comes on the LTE Nexus.

    Crappy Nexus pics below.

    Should've read around more, these were confirmed not to fit the LTE model

    As for the pics, those are actually really good looking pics. Thanks for taking the time for showing us the difference in design as well.:)

    I read more than once on Droid Life that it fits. I usually research my purchases. This one didnt work out so well.

    Yeah this has been known for about a month now, a tester showed on droid-life that the GSM version didn't fit.
