comment What is exactly reverse geocoding
When I reverse geocode the center of NY (40.7305991, -73.9865812) I got a street address, When I reverse geocode bagdad cafe (34.8196934, -116.6434101), I also got an address, not the Café, I think I will consider only address and return the nearest house or the nearest street if too far (>1km)

comment How to reverse geocode without Google?
ok, i understand :) gisgraphy is free and so does the free services but the free services are for testing purpose or occasional use only. If you plan to use it for commercial use or make a lot of requests, you have to install it, everything is free and you can have strictly the same functionnalities.I also have some premium services (installation dump or hosted service).

comment Comparison of geocoding solutions (such as Gisgraphy & PostGIS 2.0)
i don't think so, for instance, the free services doesn't give any sla, only premium. The response time depends on the server and the free service are given as is for high availability and response time (only accuracy is important, the reason why i put the free services is to test accuracy)
