FWIW seems someone has done a nice teardown of our beloved X-series here -- feat. a MP201-based system-on-a-chip w/ 250mhz arm, same as NW-A81* and friends. There's also a link to the FCC filing with scans of the pcb. Yummy!

http://www.sonyinsider.com/2009/05/2...ies-dissected/

The teardown site has all the grisly details about CPU and memory.

The wireless is a Murata made "LBWA-LC", 802.11b/g with no bluetooth, sadly.

Running on all this is linux, just like the NW-A80*/A81* (http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...ad.php?t=19560). Linuxy bits are gpl'd, so Sony _ought_ to have the source available for our curious eyes, modulo some closed-source blobs. The weblink to the A810 source is borked though. Maybe all this will be useful to some brave souls. The info, not the fact that the link is broken.

Oh snap, this was a long post. Are you bored to death? Good. Now I can take your car.

Hey ultrapony, welcome to ABi and thanks for the info. However, as of this post, the Sony link leads to a 404 page - nuthin' there.

Sweet...Though I know nothing about the guts in DAPs, I am pretty sure the Sony HW gearheads will enjoy this.

Always better when someone else does a teardown, right?

Ascariss, thanks for the plug. Delicious innards. Mmm...

ALSO. I found out Sony provides the linux bits here:
http://www.sony.net/Products/Linux/Audio/NW-X1050.html
Site is not loading for me, but google cache tell me its running a 2.6.10 kernel, busybox 1.1.0, u-boot 1.1.1, and... ppp/pppoe(!). More details on the (google cached) site.
