Symbian OS is a proprietary operating system, designed for mobile devices, with associated libraries, user interface frameworks and reference implementations of common tools, produced by Symbian Ltd. It is a descendant of Psion's EPOC and runs exclusively on ARM processors (while EPOC ran on x86 processors). EPOC first appeared in 1980 and was renamed to Symbian in 2001.

It is often used on Smartphones and competes with Windows Mobile and Blackberry in this market place.
