The TI Modem is the modem part of the openmoko platform. It handles all the
mobile phone functionalities of the openmoko phone.
Information that can be extracted are the neighbor cells informations like
cell identifiers and received signal level for each of them.

In order to know the location of the phone, we need to create a database of
cell locations in order to triangulate the phone's position by using the
cells that the phone sees at a certain time.
So the first step is to create that cell location database, and that is the
purpose of this app that I'm developing.
