Gustavo,
There is an optional J2ME package currently being developed (JSR 179 - http://jcp.org/jsr/detail/179.jsp Its a little ways out though.
Also, cell phone manufacterers in the USA have a mandate to provide location data for emergency 911 calls. This will be provided through built-in GPS, network-based location services or a combination of the two. Phones supporting J2ME are likely to provide some sort of Java API that extends J2ME to support these services. Hopefully, these APIs will use the standards being defined by JSR 179 rather than proprietary APIs.
Hope this helps,
-david
