Is there any API provided by google maps service to get the location of the BB. I dont have google maps installed in my device. If there is an api through which google can return me my current location it would have been great. Is there any api like that ??

There is a location API that used to be provided by Google, through their Gears project. There are a few Threads about it on the forum if you look round you should be able to find them.
I actually tried to use it one time too.
However that API is deprecated. I recommend instead that you use the BB Cell Site service, which is available on devices running OS 5.0 and above. My experience is that it is faster and more accurate than any results I got using the Google.
