Symbian, smartphone operating system

I know Symbian is a smart phone operating system.

Does symbian use with other apps ?

What I am worry is that things can be use in other smartphone operating system cannot be use in Symbian.

Can symbian read txt file? and PDF file and word file?

Symbian can read a PDF, and word file for sure. I haven't tried a straight text file but I would be shocked if it couldn't open them. Before you ask, yes it can also read a epub file if you use the right app.

I have the Nokia N8 myself. (12 MP Camera!!!)

Reading ebooks on a Symbian phone

I read ebooks on a Symbian phone (Nokia E61) in a variety of formats. The software available includes Mobipocket Reader, eReader, Bubue Books (for non-DRM epub files), QReader (for Palm DOC files) and iSilo. TXT files can be read and edited with LightNotePad while Nokia provide a free PDF viewer with the phone.
There is no way of reading Kindle ebooks or DRM'd epub files, but I do not find this a problem because I can read the epub books on a Sony Reader.
For more information on Symbian a very good website is www.allaboutsymbian.com.
