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.
Android and Symbian are both open-sourced OS. Symbian at the timewas the most popular mobile OS worldwide (Nokia being its biggestproponent) until Android surpassed it around …2011. Part ofSymbian's fall was that much of its licensed source code wasrestricted to only member companies. In comparison, Android'slicensed source code is relatively free of restrictions, whichhelped spur its use among manufacturers, carriers, and thedeveloper community.

Symbian is a proprietary (Nokia) operating system for mobile phones and on 11 February 2011, Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop, a former Microsoft employee, unveiled a new strategic alliance with Microsoft, and announced it would replace Symbian and MeeGo with Windows Phone 7.

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.
