Android Market And Gmail Working Again In China

Android Market and Gmail ChinaQuick heads up guys, Google’s Android Market and Gmail are working again, in China.

According to Google, it was due to their fault, not a blockage from the Chinese authorities, which is sort of reassuring. A software update resulted in the inaccessibility, said Google.

We identified a technical issue during a software update, and have now fixed it.

said a Google spokesperson to PO Tech Asia.

A quick accessibility test here for market.android.com returns with positive results. Sweet. Not that many users were affected, since there are a number of Android Market rip offs in China, but its always good to have the service active rather than being blocked.
