Symbian OS is an operating system designed for mobile devices, with associated libraries, user interface, frameworks and reference implementations of common tools, devel…oped by Symbian Ltd. It is a descendant of Psion's EPOC and runs exclusively on ARM processors.
Symbian OS was a popular mobile operating system in the early daysof smartphones, used by many manufacturers at the time but mostlyby Nokia. It ran on ARM platforms, and it ha…d its own native(Symbian) kernel. Android OS is one of the most popular operatingsystems today, used by many manufacturers. It runs on multipleplatforms, and has a Linux-based kernel. To date, the Nokia 808Pureview (released in 2012) is the last smartphone to use SymbianOS.

There's a lot of variety of Operating System (OS) used in mobiles. On early years, popular mobile brands used Java or Symbian or even Both in one mobile phones. The brands are… Nokia, Sony Ericsson, and etc. They're very popular in 2005 - 2009. Now there are a lot of mobile OS. They are Android, Apple OS (well-known as iOS), Blackberry OS, and Windows Phone. Android is used by almost all mobile brands, iOS by Apple, Blackberry OS by blackberry (next year will be in iOS and Android too), and some of them uses Windows Phone(Nokia,Samsung,etc). The Java and Symbian OS nearly dead. But it's still great I think.
The primary difference between the two is that Android is a mobile platform while Java is a programming language. Often however, Android is jJva-based.

Network operating systems are the ones which run on a server and can be accessed through client machines connected on the network. e.g. Solaris or Linux running on a server can be used as network operating systems. Even there are Windows server operating systems which can be used by clients connected on the network. - Neeraj Sharma
