I hate to burst your bubble, but the 2nd gen Shuffle, that incorporated a clip, was released before the original Sansa Clip that we all love here.

On September 12, 2006, Apple announced the release of the second generation iPod Shuffle, calling it "the most wearable iPod ever".[4] First shipments of the unit were slated for an October 2006 arrival, but actually started shipping on Friday, November 3, 2006.[5] The second generation initially featured a lone 1 GB model in a silver brushed aluminum case similar to the second generation iPod Nano and the older iPod Mini. The new model is less than half the size of the first generation model at 41.2 x 27.3 x 10.5 mm (1.62 x 1.07 x 0.41 in), and is the size of the iPod Radio Remote available for iPod Nanos and 5th generation iPods. Apple claimed it was the "world's smallest MP3 player". This size includes the new built-in belt clip;

Also known as the m300, the Sansa Clip was released on October 9, 2007.[13] The player is similar in size to the second-generation iPod Shuffle, but incorporates a removable clip and 4-line OLED screen

Obviously, I think the Clip is better than the Shuffle, given the screen, MSC mode and RB availability though.
