Location based API

As recently [1] arguing for a way to get geo information out of the mobile phone based on standard technologies like WAP and boradcasting services, Gregor [2] just pointed me to a Nokia article [3] on JavaOne technologies at present and in future to be implemented in mobile devices.

The main element of this package is a location provider that delivers the device\’s current location to the application. [..] This API not only will enable \”what\’s near me\” restaurant services, but also could be the basis of some cool games.

Just found that site [4] via the \”Related Links\” engine:

The Alternis Location Mediation System (LMS) allows mobile network operators to develop and offer personalised, private, billable applications and services with no adverse effect on network performance or quality.
