Location Based Services are a key driver in today's telecom market, even if the power of Location Based Services is not nearly exhausted in nowadays telecom systems. To build intuitive Location Based Services for mobile handsets one success factor is to cover a broad range of mobile handsets available on the market and to make the services context aware. Within the EUREKA project MyMobileWeb the authors implement a framework to obtain contextual information from handsets using various capabilities of the mobiles. Contextual Information is every information they can obtain from the handset and that can be used for any kind of service.
