Symbian is a smartphone OS like Android, iOS and Windows Phone so they are the same.

1) Well, the main disadvantages is that smartphones (which is a phone that runs on an OS and can do more than a feature phone) are more vulnerable to viruses and they consume more power which results in a shorter battery life (but this isn't always true). Advantage, well, that they can do more than a feature phone and can have higher end hardware which a feature phone can't have. Instead of Java apps, you get better, higher quality apps on smartphones. They provide richer functions and are more advanced and internet works more better on them. Simply, a smartphone is like computer in your pocket. Android, iOS, Symbian and Windows Phone are all smartphone OSs so they can do more than what a typical feature phone can do.

2) On Symbian, you can install Java apps. But on other OSs, you can't (although strangely, Android apps are programmed with the Java language). J2ME Java apps are kind crappy nowadays. Try comparing the Java version of Need for Speed Shift with an Android or iOS version and you'd be surprised by how different they are. However, you can have .pdf books on each OS. All that's needed is a .pdf reader like Adobe Reader. Usually, they can be found on the app store on your phone (Ovi, Android Marketplace, App Store and etc.).
