They can both offer similar things, but Android is more modern and user friendly. Symbian is only used by Nokia and they have decided to drop it now in favour of Windows Phone 7 (from Microsoft). Android will still keep going for a long time yet, so it will continue growing and getting better, while Symbian is a bit dead in the water. In terms of features they are probably able to offer pretty much the same things, although Android is a lot more customisable. It is also easier to use than Symbian. Symbian would have been a good choice a few years back but there are newer and better things now - Android being one of them.

Android is tightly integrated with Google’s cloud services, such as Gmail, Calendar, Contacts, Gtalk, etc. This positions Google at a very good edge to monetize mobile ad revenuesAndroid’s open source nature enables manufacturers to design and customize the platform to their own likings. So fragmentation is a concern here. However, the core Android OS provides more than enough features for current mobile devices’ needs. As it evolves, it might include more standardized features, and the OS platform can only become better and better.Android is also being developed for Netbook, ebook readers, and a slew of other electronic appliances. So it’s more than a mobile device OSAndroid is realizing it now.-----------------------------------------The main platforms for Symbian includes S60 and UIQ. UIQ was closed down and all people got laid off shortly after the creation of Symbian foundation. As to how appealing open source Symbian to developers are yet to be seen. S60 series are no doubt the leader in number of installed base today. However, Symbian’s market share, especially in the smartphone area, are getting smaller and smaller largely due to iPhone.The main language used for Symbian programming is J2ME and C++. C++ API provides more lower level device access than J2ME. However, their C++ implementation is unnecessarily complex and error-prone. Their paradigm is not suitable for the needs of modern mobile computing. It will require them a great efforts to deliver something comparable to Android and iPhone.

Android is an open source operating system. You can write your own applications in android operating system. Its source code is open for all. Anybody can modify it according to his own needs. Whereas the source code for symbian system is not available to anybody

symbion is the first developed os which has great specifications.multi tasking is the best specification of symbian that allows to use more than one applications at a time. But the main draw back of symbian is we cant create applications in this platform since it is licensed. Android also comes with all specifications of symbian includ multi tasking. But the main difference is it allows to create applications for free. Thus users can create android applications they need.
