I am new to mobile development. I am looking to develop a location based service. I have a few questions, would be great if someone can provide some inputs...
1) Can I find out the cellID of the nearest tower from a web application? Or is it only possible to gt that info from an app installed on the phone? Same wih GPS. Can I find out the location using GPS from a web application. I know that Google Buzz mobile app does have the ability to fetch the location info from a web app on iPhone. Not sure if the same can be acheieved on all phones.
2) Will the method to find out the cellID vary from phone to phone? Is there any standard way all companies adopt which will make it easier for deelopers? I am looking only from the java perspective right now.
3) any sample code would be great.
