Google testifies their stand before the ‘Congressional - Executive Commission on China’ on its new approach in China and what led to it. “We believe our new approach of providing uncensored search in simplified Chinese from Google.com.hk is a sensible solution to the challenges we've faced,” notes Google. Following Google’s new stand, early on Tuesday morning China began blocking access to or filtering results from google.com.hk. And China Mobile, China’s biggest cellular communications company and one of Google’s earliest partners in its foray into smartphones, is expected to scarp the deal which placed Google’s search engine on its mobile web home page under government pressure. Similarly, China Unicom, was said by analysts and others to have delayed or scrapped the imminent introduction of a cellphone based on Google’s Android platform. One popular Web portal, Tom.com, already ceased using Google to power its search engine. The company is controlled by Li Ka-shing, the Hong Kong billionaire who has close ties to the Chinese government,” reports NYT.
