Run DOS on BlackBerry PlayBook

The BlackBerry PlayBook is getting cooler and cooler each day. Someone just managed run DOS on the BlackBerry PlayBook. YES! The command line OS back in the good old days of PC. And they managed to run classic games like Prince of Persia and Wolfenstein 3D.

You will most likely need a bluetooth keyboard connected to your PlayBook since you can’t bring up the virtual keyboard on DOSBox. Anyone still remember DOS commands like “dir”? Haha.
If you have a BlackBerry PlayBook, check out the forum discussion on how to install DOSBox.


  1. dir is still relevant today if you use command prompt on windows.
    The thing I remember most about DOS and did are those old movies where they loop dir commands to simulate the screen scrolling with lotsa info.
