Is this for the outside shape? The mixture of materials? Please describe in detail what this design patent actually means.

To quote Judge Rader (of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit), with a design paternt: "you get the picture". In other words, trying to describe it is generally pointless -- it's mostly about comparing the accused device to the picture(s) in the patent, and infringing basically means they look essentially the same.
