hii
I found a Nokia phone model N91 which has Jsr 179.here is the link where i found it
http://www.forum.nokia.com/main/0,,018-2630,00.html?model=N91

so my query is ....is this api in the phone sufficient to execute midlets that use jsr179 api or does it need a GPS chip to be installed in the phone... i hope someone will take a moment to reply to this..Thanks

Hi Pallavi,
My guess would be that it will be fine to execute midlets with jsr179 on that phone. I am unsure whether the phone comes with a GPS chip though, if it doesn't I guess a bluetooth GPS receiver could be used in conjunction with the phone. I do think it would be unusual for a phone to come out with software libraries and no hardware support so it should have a GPS chip.

Regards
Jari

I wouldn't be so sure. Specification
http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=179
says that for Localization API GPS receiver is not necessary. Identifying the location of a cellular may be assured by E-OTD for example as well.

Hi
Thanks for your replies. I mailed the same query to JSR-179-TCK-RI-support@nokia.com . I got this reply
"Location API itself is agnostic of positioning technology, so as long
as a phone supports this API you should not bother too much which of
positioning techniques the phone uses."

So i guess the phone includes Hardware Support too
