Google Mobile services partly blocked in China

Looks like the “warrages on, with Google updating a page which tracks the status of its services in China to indicate that its “Mobile” service there is now partly blocked. This might probably mean a service disruption for perhaps one, or all of the features (heaven forbid) that Google offers to users of Google-powered phones, and among these would include the mobile version of its search, e-mail, mapping and social networking services. On the marketing side, we think that this is a wee bit discomforting since it might mean more folks in China picking up the iPhone instead of an Android-powered handset – and considering China’s every growing middle class as well as the population there, it could end up being a considerable profit for whichever company that comes out tops.
