Windows Desktop on Nokia Symbian
Make your mobile phone’s user interface & operational efficiency like Windows Desktop or make it touch controllable or the iPhone like, or better even, work on your important documents through the actual Microsoft Word. Make your symbian small-screen mobile so personalized that it functions the way you like and when you like it without the need of too many applications hogging up your phone memory or them killing your Nokia mobile phone CPU cycles!
Today I am going to publish a different kind of post and will be reviewing two of the of the best platforms that will act as a new add-on of platform based mobile software to enhance the user experience by adding a completely new platform to the symbian OS operating system. They all have one thing in common and that is they all allows you to personalize your smartphone, its usability or UI. In my opinion these are the next best thing to the standard applications like Quickoffice, Smartmovies, LCG Jukebox etc. Through all these fine applications you will be able to customize your Nokia the way you always wanted your smartphone to be without any hassle at all.
All these Nokia mobile software are exclusively made for symbian based devices only and are not compatible to any phone that is not running the S60 OS.
The category I will be focusing is that of a different experience of the interface of the Nokia symbian operating system.
- iPhone Experience on Nokia:
Symbian Plus was one of the pioneering applications that really redefined the way we can use our phone. I am sure that most of you have SymbianPlus already installed on your Nokia smartphone but if you dont then you can get it from the post of Series 60 or S60 Symbian Plus on Nokia symbian themes.
However though it will let you use your Nokia like an iPhone it will not fulfill the need of the Windows Desktop now will it?
- Windows Desktop Experience on Nokia (Visually):
For that you will have to install the brand new add on software called Real Vista Desktop for Nokia (it also supports the visual elements of windows XP too) which can turn your Symbian menu into a full featured Windows UI phone. Real Vista Desktop is an add-on for the mobile version of the FlashLite player. With Real Vista Desktop you will be able to enjoy almost same visual experience of Windows Vista installed on your smartphone.
You can add new icons to the Start Menu, set up access points to be used, start the calculator, launch contacts and many other things from one single start up dock menu. Real Vista Desktop for Nokia mobile devices is a must have application if you are in love with your phone but not with how you have to navigate through. The download archive also features several different mobile phone backgrounds and themes so you can be quite sure that you will like em!

- Windows Desktop Experience on Nokia (Functionally):
To achieve the functionality of Windows Desktop on Nokia you will have to start off with the native core of Windows, MS-DOS. Yes that can surely be achieved with the help of the latest applications in the market today called the DOS BOX Emulator for Nokia symbian smartphones which lets you run DOS Commands, thus virtually letting you run any program that is based on the DOS Platform. This is a gigantic leap for the entire smartphones technology and you are welcome to be a part of it!
Through this most important mobile application you will be able to run softwares like Microsoft Paint, play games like Solitaire, Do Word & Excel document Processing, and virtually everything else that Windows 98 lets you do.
