Jim Liddle's Symbian Blog: Google Local For Mobile Using Ajax For Midlet!

It seems that Google have done it again, having brought Google local to the mobile phone with a fairly sophisticated Midlet that also has Ajax support.

It is amazing what is in 38K of Midlet, and it is good to see Google pushing the envelope on mobile like this. As per my comments previously on this page, there already exists MGMaps which provides a J2ME interface to Google Maps but it is not as slick as this. Check this out  from Google here.

We are starting a new project to develop a system/application to be used on cell phones. The main purpose of this
system is to allow people find other people in real time and provide proximity information about stores, banks,
hospitals, etc on your same phone. The application will detect the user location based on GPS or Cell ID Information.

The code will be based on GPL 3.0, this is a volunteer offering.

If you want to be involved as a volunteer and think you can add more brains to the project please go to http://www.androidlocation.com

This is not news anymore.

And it is not AJAX.

Is it possible to get Google Local For Mobile without "using" a mobile phone? I'd like to test it out in a J2ME emulator like Sun's Wireless Toolkit. There doesn't appear to be instructions for downloading it directly.
