What is Symbian

I am currently working in a KPO from last 10 years. I am at the clerical staff level in the company and enjoying my life. I am using a LG phone since two months, apart from that one of my colleague in the office who is very close to me is using a Window s mobile phone. And his phone use to crash frequently which was very much annoying. Someone suggested him to switch to Symbian phones. I have never heard of symbian, and have very limited knowledge about mobile phones, so is there anyone who can bring to light as to what is symbian.

Re: What is Symbian

There are several problems in Nokia?s smartphone that are known to its users . It seems that the market share of the Symbian?s has dropped down drastically from nearly eighty percent several years ago to less than thirty percent in the most recent times. There are several factors responsible for Symbian falling behind of its competitors. It has suffered a lot through its its flop show in Nokia N97, and has had trouble shipping its newest smart phones, such as the Nokia N8 on time. I feel its high time that Nokia?s smart phones start thinking about the Google Android or Microsoft?s Windows Phone platform instead of its Symbian.
