Wondering if we can get real address from longitude and latitude via maps? I'm thinking of getting the lon and lat, and reverse it to display the nearest town/city/country.

You can use the REVERSE GEOCODING. there is an API form Google which returns address when you pass latitude and longitude as parameters.
the url is as such:
http://maps.google.com/maps/geo?q=" + latitude+","+longitude + "&output=csv&sensor=false&key=YOURKEY

is there anyway we can use BlackBerry's API instead of Google? Afraid they changed it and break the apps.
- Update : Found the required API at http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverab
Will investigate further.
