Microsoft Window on your Nokia phone – Possible?

Author: MyNokia5800  //  Category: Uncategorized

Yes!! It’s possible to install Microsoft Window 3.1 on your Nokia phone now.

Thanks to DosBox, now I manage to install Ms.Window 3.1 on my Nokia 5800.
However it is hard to control the mouse and typing as Nokia5800 doesn’t have keypad. It’s not perfect but it do show us the Power Of Symbian!

How to do it?
Before you continue, I want to warn you that “Install At Your Own Risk”. But since I’m able to install it, I don’t think there is any problem.

First we need to download the DosBox here. Then install the DosBox. DosBox is a Dos emulator.

Then download the Microsoft Window 3.1 here. Unpack the rar file and moved its content to “E:\data\” folder.

You are ready to go now. Run the DosBox and let it auto load the Window 3.1

    @Dragon City,
    here is the URL
    http://www.ubuntu.com/products/mobileBut make sure you familiar enough with Linux commands before you proceed with the OS replacement.

    Since ur phone is also running on a MIPS processor, it should be able to run on it without problem.

    It might be have slightly less features than Windows Mobile, since it is quite a new project.
    But at least you can fully customize it as you like.

    @Kenwooi,
    You are wrong, it is not the power of Symbian, since it has been replaced by Windows in this case. Symbian is just the OS, not the chipset or the processor itself.

    You should say it is the power of Humanity, The power of MIPS powered devices.

    :P

    so it means u r doing dos emulation on top of symbian?
    if thats the case, then u have to be careful on installing the Ubuntu Mobile, coz it is totally takes control of the device operating system.

    Ubuntu Mobile is build to replace current operating system of the mobile device.

    I¡¯ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
