According to Nokia, more people in the world use a Symbian smartphone than any other. The Symbian platform, uniquely designed with smartphones in mind, offers a host of experiences that consumers demand today including multiple home screens, gesture interaction and visual multitasking. The platform boasts its flexibility to scale and extend smartphone features to lower price points.
While the Symbian OS platform does not showcase the projected growth patterns or premier app stores of other top OSs, its device diversity presents an opportunity for developers. With millions of devices running the Symbian OS, many advertisers and brands find the Symbian audience and demographics essential in their media plan, giving developers plenty of opportunity to make money from Symbian apps.
