BTW the e200 series did have metal back plates, I'm not sure they'd go back to that with the quality of plastic polymers today, plus metal would only add weight and possibly cost more ...
I totally agree, but the form factor of the Fuze seemed very much inspired by the (at that time) new iPod Nano, and of course the clip-shuffle comparison. But Sansa totally blows Apple out of the water with both players.
