Default easy to use mp3 player for non techie middle aged woman. No touchscreens please.

Hello all,

I am looking for a good sized player that isn't made by apple, since they went all touch screen a while back...

My friends' mother is stuck in the hospital and would love to listen to some music, she does not like her daughters' ipod nano (the square all touch one), as such I am trying to help her find a easy to use player with buttons that isn't too small in actual size or storage space... and I am having trouble. Not many players are actually available in Canada (most stores seem to carry cheap brands like Hip Street or Coby, Phillips, in addition to the bigger and more expensive players like $ony or Apple).

I have been looking at the sansa clip zip and it may be too small to be of use to the person I am buying it for.

My personal preferences for a player of this type would be one with dedicated buttons, can be expanded using micro sd (i have a 32GB) and not give troubles with the player (like long load times). Also, Video playback is not needed.

way back when, I used to use players that were powered by AAA batteries and had an sd card slot, I think it was a Rio (Blue/Black/Chrome)... I do not know if players are still made like that these days...

Anyone have any suggestions?
Digital Audio Players: Sandisk Sansa Clip Zip with 32GB MicroSD card (current), Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Telus Mobility, Canada), Microsoft Zune 120GB
