The current version of symbian is not a real time OS. I think they are working on a RT symbian in the symbian community right now.

For a OS to be RT it should have the two c/cs:
1. The kernel is re-entrant & pre-emptable (necessary but not sufficient).
2. The response to events should be predictable.

Regards,
Amraldo.

i think it will come under embedded OS....
It's can yes. and no. At the first i think it more called firmware than RTOS. Futherly it can say RTOS because from version 5.0 it can do a multitasking process. and have thread.

Before i don't know.

refer to www.nokia.com
