    what do you mean by area ?
    Do you mean like street, city ?
    Then no there is no inbuilt J2ME API for that, it would mean that every device should be shipped with gigabytes of data...
    What you might want to do is look into reverse geocoding and search for free web-services offering reversed geocoding...

    Try reverse geo-coding, see the Java script example with google maps reverse geocoding - here:
