DOS Runs on BlackBerry PlayBook
Research In Motion's (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM) Tablet, the BlackBerry PlayBook has received not so good reviews due to a lack of apps, since it was launched in April 2011. The 7-inch BlackBerry® PlayBook™ which runs on OMAP4430 chipset consists of a 1GHz Dual Core Processor, 1GB RAM and QNX OS, (recently renamed as BBX,) and does have great compatibility with multiple programming platforms. The scope of developing apps on BlackBerry PlayBook showcased a huge potential in many hosted events from RIM, and developers are now showing interest in developing apps for the BlackBerry Tablet.
Meanwhile, in BlackBerry's rated #1 forum, CrackBerry.com, some members have collaborated to make DOSBox run on the BlackBerry PlayBook. DOSBox is an piece of software that emulates an IBM PC compatible computer running MS-DOS. It is intended especially for use with old PC games, and is free software with source files available online. CrackBerry members compiled and made DOSBox ready to work on the BlackBerry PlayBook; the touch-screen works as a Mouse in DOS.
Here's a video showing a full DOSBox install working on BlackBerry PlayBook after installing on the Tablet.
