I read on forums that there will be assisted GPS on the Playbook.
I didn't find in API reference any object that refers to a Location class. Does it exist?

Air 2.5 has a geolocation API, check the link below for more info.
However I have only implemented/used/debug this api on devices that support Geolocation.
Even though the Playbook has Geolocation features you computer does not, therefore neither does the simulator or so I would assume.
Check out this post by Serge Jespers for a temporary ideas until you get your hands on a device to test with.

It was mentioned in the "Develop for the BlackBerry Tablet OS" series that the GPS API should be available in the next simulator version. I think I can remember that this is planned to come early January.

I posted some code here:
That allows you to simulate GPS information for the desktop (and simulator). The coordinates are around Charlottesville, VA, but you can change the coordinates if you need to.

nothing is being displayed using the previous link :-(
Playing around I got it working without the page number at the end
