Symbian development on GNU/Linux
The SDK:s for Symbian development from Nokia and UIQ are Windows only but with patches from www.martin.st/symbian/ it should be possible to build Symbian applications for phones in Linux. However for building binaries for the emulator Wine and tools from Carbide.C++ must be used.
SendMyLocation is an MIDP 2 application (Java ME) that can be used to send information about your position to a friend. If your friend also has the application installed it is automatically started when there is an incoming message. The application can then display the position and if you want it can lookup the nearest city by making a query to the Geonames.org web service.
The application requires a mobile phone with support for MIDP 2.0 or later and the Wireless Messaging API (JSR-120). To be able to aquire the position the phone also needs support for the Location API (JSR-179) but this is not needed to be able to receive positions sent by others.
