If the device has a geo fix, then the image has EXIF tags that contain this information. I just tested it and found that the following tags were present:

If you want to inspect the EXIF tags that are present in an image, I recommend the free ImageJ application and its EXIF Reader plugin.

Is there any java library available to read those EXIF tags?
