Report: Google Bailing on China in Early April

google-china-bikeApril 10. That’s the day Google will reportedly begin its withdrawal from China. So reports Shanghai-based China Business News, which says the company will announce plans for its withdrawal on March 22 (here’s a lousy Google translation of the original article). “I have received information saying that Google will leave China on April 10,” an unidentified Google China employee told the publication. “But this information has not at present been confirmed by Google.”

Nor will it be at this point, I imagine. Anyway, I’ve asked the company for comment and will update here if I’m given one. In the meantime, best to view this report with a wary eye.

UPDATE: This just in from Google (GOOG): “We can’t confirm any timeline and we will not be giving a running commentary of our plans.”
