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.
Hi Thanks for your replies. I mailed the same query to JSR-179-TCK-RIemail@example.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
