    First off, is the Droid X using a 32 or 64 bit processor? Or is it lower, as in 24 or 16 bit?

    Secondly, is it possible to modify the Android OS enough to be able to run SPARC Operating System, being that is is Java based?

    Droid X uses the TI OMAP 3630, which has an ARM Cortex A8 CPU core. The ARM Cortex A8 is a superscalar 32-bit RISC architecture with a 13 stage pipeline.

    As for your second question, SPARC is a processor architecture; not an operating system. SPARC processors run SunOS, Solaris, or OpenSolaris (typically). These use a different kernel than Android, as they are UNIX variants rather than Linux variants. There isn't even a version of any of these OSes for ARM. So with an incompatible Linux-based kernel, even if somehow it were possible to replace Android with Solaris's Java-based GUI, the whole thing would have to be modified to support ARM and run on a Linux kernel rather than Solaris's UNIX kernel. In the end, the answer is that there is a difference between "possible" and "plausible"
