Having started back in early 2007, Sports Tracker has been a niche but useful application for many, and this announcement explains the recent lull in updates – the lawyers have been busy! Kaasinen spoke to Running Digital on the new company:
STT is slightly larger now than the original two-person core team, but their available resources have been especially limited due to complicated intellectual property issues; Jussi said, “You wouldn’t believe how many lawyers have been involved with this.” Our conversation lasted for about a half hour.
What happens next is going to be fun. There are no major announcements just yet, but users can relax, knowing the service is safe for at least a few more years. I'll be watching with interest both the new company, and also the Nokia led 'evolution' of Sports Tracker into Ovi Journeys (which ties into Ovi Maps).
