I think it's them probably making sure they have the domain under lock and key. Although the market in china has to be very tempting for them.
The problem with any search engine targeting china is the level of censorship. It would make it very difficult for any se to do well.

It certainly looks like moves are being made, we are discussing this in the Asia-Pacific forum over here [webmasterworld.com].

The source code of google.cn
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=gb2312">
<frameset cols="0,*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
<frame src="http://tiger.www.net.cn/myname.html" scrolling="NO" noresize>
Are you sure this domain is now owned by Google?

I think this is a piece of fake news.
Google never claimed the deal of Google.com.cn and Google.cn.
And the source code confirms its owner is not Google inc.

That is not the source code Ive got, It has no mention of the one above.
Will someone else have a look?

Yep, I am seeing straight Google sites on both those domains.
