Sony Touchscreen Walkman X-series, no Cell to be found.

Sony recently released their touchscreen walkman, which is a pretty slick device. Sony Insider dissected one and what is absent, is about as interesting as what is there. Sony use to be a pretty big manufacturer of in house IC designs, everything from DSP,s to processors (like the Cell used in the PS3) to analog parts. So in this new walkman you would expect to see the Sony name on at least one or 2 parts. The main processor is a NEC ARM chip, RAM by Hynix, and Flash by Samsung so all said a pretty much off the shelf build.
