OpenBmap is the project you're looking for. http://www.openbmap.org Does
wifi and mobile phone cells. They have client apps to submit data for
Android, WinCE and Openmoko but the API is easy enough to write more clients
for. Using that data to derive location is more experimental. There are
SQLite downloads for each county but then you have to triangulate.
I did start writing a drop in replacement of the Google location API web
service that you can easily change the URL of in Firefox. Perhaps should
clean it up and contribute back ;)
