  • Most new American mobile phones come with “location-based services” (LBS) due to the E911 regulation (which requires the phone to report it location when an emergency call is made). Sometimes it uses GPS, sometimes it’s tower triangulation – it depends on the carrier. Google E911 if you want more info. There’s also stuff on the Sun website about accessing LBS through the Location API using J2ME, for the mobile developers out there.
