Metal button panel and back clip?

My Sandisk Sansa Zip Clip arrived with a flat metal button interface. Just wondering what model / version this is because I have not seen it advertised anywhere. Even when I google it.

 

The back clip is plastic but has a brushed metal clip surface and the front buttons have a flat metal panel. Not sure what metal it is either but my guess is anodized aluminium?

Actually, that sounds very nice. If you have a few moments and a camera handy, pictures of it would be super to see. Some of us have been suggesting Clips with metal bodies for awhile now.

Interesting! the buttons look like mine, but the clip certainly looks different from mine. Looks nice!

Now I am wondering what my blue one will look like when it gets here....lol. Remember on the Fuze and original Clip, the blue on them, that looked much nicer in person than on the computer screen? I'm hoping it is like that.

My Clip looks exactly the same, but I didn't get it from Costco, I got it from a seller "BlueProton" via Amazon:

I selected "Black", which shows a black button panel on the webpage, but got a metallic button panel and clip.

Re: Metal button panel and back clip?

Is it really metal or "metal looking" (painted, brushed plastic with a metallic coating) ?
