Google Mobile, maps page, has surfaced with a “My Location” Feature. Though still a beta release, it still could be very useful as they've explained it.

With the help of this feature you could "See your location on the map, with or without GPS. Save time and tedious keystrokes finding where you are, what's around you, and how to get there."

As far as the accuracy is concerned they say "The My Location feature takes information broadcast from mobile towers near you to approximate your current location on the map – it's not GPS, but it comes pretty close (approximately 1000m close, on average)."

This beta release is just the beginning and they want to build on it really well "We're still in beta, but we're excited to launch this feature and are constantly working to improve our coverage and accuracy.

The My Location feature is available for most web-enabled mobile phones, including Java, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, and Nokia/Symbian devices."
