    So I have been trying to get the original fallout on my HTC thunderbolt for days now, I have downloaded a few files but don't know where to start. So my question is where can I download the original version of fallout on my phone, and how do I get it to play?

    HTC Thunderbolt runs Android on an ARM processor. Fallout was written for DOS/Windows on 80386, so you'll need an emulator. Some people have reported getting it to (sort of) work on a PSP using DosBox; you could try the Android version of it. As for getting Fallout onto the phone, just hook it up to your computer and copy the files over.

    Even if there's a perfect copy of Fallout working under DOSBOX at perfect speed on your Android phone, the nature of the interface will make gameplay into a cumbersome nightmare on the 4.5-inch screen.

    hello as for them android phones and Fallout it's not the time Yet.

    As for how well it would run I've made a video on running Fallout1 on Samsung Galaxy S2

    view it ,Here , then the description and after that decide if it's still worth a shot.
    Until adosbox supports hardware graphic acceleration built in on those new mobile devices, until it's not going to run fast enough to be playable
