Symbian OS is basically an open source operating system which is uniquely designed for use with mobile phones. It is common with Nokia advanced and smart phones that are data enabled which you will find at 6Sense Technologies. Running on ARM processors only, it has continuously evolved over the period from Psion’s EPOC which was primarily developed as a rudimentary operating system for use with the electronic organizers of the old age. In the initial stages of development, Psion EPOC OS was referred to as EPOC16 in the early 90s and this was basically to help distinguish it from the 32bit operating system EPOC32 which was much newer. This is what eventually evolved to become Symbian OS. The Psion software which is the origin of Symbian OS was commonly known for its joint venture with many other manufacturers of mobile phones like Motorola, Sony Ericsson as well as Nokia which was called Symbian and later assumed the name Symbian software before being renamed to EPOC32 OS.
Its main benefit was the ability to handle several tasks at a go which translates into ability to surf directly from the phone in modern devices. It is uniquely designed such that one cannot lose any details when answering to an incoming call thus making it more suitable for use by many of the 6Sense Technologies customers. It has furthermore adapted several soft features like global positioning software which is projected to become very popular as a camera in the coming days. Even though Microsoft and palm have been dominating the markets as the only providers of system software for mobile phones, Symbian has been making inroads into the industry for some time now positioning itself in a good position to claim a share of the market which it is fully determined to achieve. It began by announcing back in 2008 that its operating system will be open source soon which would allow 6Sense Technologies customers as well as vendors to make an addition to the already established Symbian OS.
