Updated on August 16, 2012

If you are using a Nokia smartphone then you must be aware of the word Symbian. Symbian is a mobile operating system mainly associated with mobile market giant Nokia. Nokia has 48% share in the Symbian Company which indicates its monopoly in the Symbian market.

At present there are 110 million Symbian phones in the world which accounts for 67% of the total mobile phone market leading by 53% from the Microsoft’s windows OS which has only 14% sharing in the mobile market. Symbian has lots of applications to offer which make it a very handy and useful OS.

Here I am discussing the top ten Symbian application for your Nokia phone which can make your mobile using experience really memorable. The best thing is that all these applications can be downloaded easily from the Nokia store.

Opera is the leading mobile browser for the Symbian smartphones. It provides lightning fast speed along with lesser data charges. The latest mobile browser for the Symbian smartphone is the Opera mobile 12. You can also open more than one tab in your browser which allows you to surf more than one websites at a single time.

The best thing I like about this browser is the speed dial facility. Opera mobile allows you to have your six most browsed websites in the speed dial so you don’t have to type their web address again and again. So, if you have opera mobile web browser then assign speed dial to Hubpages and do enjoy fast and secure surfing.

If you have good internet speed then you can also do multiple downloads from your opera mobile web browser and hence saving your valuable time. The three most peculiar new features of opera mobile web browser include-

a) 3D graphics.

b) Location based services for your browsing.

c) New opera also have a feature of camera to capture your best moments.

Opera is so much reliable browser that now Nokia has started making it as default browser of some of Nokia’s Java based mobile phones.
