Location Providers

 Hi all,

The LocationProvider class (android.location.LocationProvider) is
documented as being an abstract super-class, However I could not find
any concrete classes (eg GPSLocationProvider, CellLocationProvider,
WifiLocationProvider etc.).

Does any body (either from within google, or otherwise) know which
location providers are actually implemented?

How would one go about implementing other LocationProviders?

Many thanks in advance.

1. Multiple handsets, single Google account?

As I eagerly await the delivery of my N1 I'm trying to anticipate how
it will sit alongside my G1. Will I need to create a new Google
account or will my existing one work with both? Actually, what
triggered this thinking was a sharing request I just got from Latitude
on my G1. If I can just use the single account, and both handsets get
separated, where will latitude think I am? What about GTalk? I'm sure
other cases like this will arise...

2. Problem with Search By Voice on Motorola Milestone

I just bought a Motorola Milestone in Switzerland and have the same
problem. I have been looking for voice search everywhere since I use
it a lot on my iPhone but nada. I am particularly surprised this is
not available on Android 2.0 since I had it in Android 1.5 on my old
G2. Besides, I have also been looking for a native Android  facebook
app (which I had heard it was published in September) but there isn't
any in the Android Market.

 Oh well, I guess I have to go back to my iPhone ...
