GEOS in 9110 runs on top of DOS (Nokia 9000 has Intel 386 and the 9110 has AMD 486 CPU which make them IBM PC compatible). You can interrupt loading GEOS and enter DOS mode.

More details can be found here:
http://download.my-symbian.com/9000/tips/file36_eng.txt

(it's an old content from former My-Communicator.com (9000/9110 section of this site) and as it's been over 4 years now most links to external resources are most probably broken)

nuts! the dos prompt launcher is broken, so are the other Dave Chapman links. i was hoping to try this out on my 9110i. does anyone know of any other links with the same contents? i know its been years now, but i think exploration on things past is easier since it doesnt involved thinkering with totally expensive products. the risk of having something old broken doesnt seem to bother people that much.

so if ever you can come across any of the applications mentioned in the article please let me know, i will be visiting this site now more often. tnx for the infos guys more power. i just need now to search for them apps. Confused Confused Confused Very Happy

9110 hasn't been manufactured/sold for FOUR years so it's no suprise that such programs are no longer available and most of the links are broken...

This site used to have a Nokia 9000/9110 section and it was one of two world's biggest Nokia 9000/9110 resources. Unfortunately, that archival part of this site is now down. If I ever find time, I'll re-launch it so that people like you who still have GEOS Communicators can still download programs and games for 9110/9000 and take advantage of interesting tips and tricks. But I can't promise when.

Anyway, for now please find DOS Prompt Launcher (including DOS), keyb9k, Backlight, Cursor and File Explorer attached to this message. Hope it'll help you to launch the DOS mode on your Communicator.

P.S. Don't expect too much from the DOS mode on the 9110. Even though the CPU is compatible with PC, there is no driver for any video mode and only text mode works. This is why DOS programs using ANY graphic mode on PC won't work on the 9110, only programs working in DOS' text mode will work. Running more advanced programs would require writing a driver which would emulate some graphic card (e.g. CGA or Hercules) on 9110's display, but it'd take not only someone willing to do it for such old and forgotten device but also having access to detailed technical information about the 9110's display hardware.

To find info about DOS on 9110 you must look for "dos9k".

Some results from google:
