Purchased google.cn and google.com.cn at million dollars

Google bought google.com.cn and google.cn for million dollars. which should be the record of domain business in China.

To launch a more localized business model will be more important than to buy a .cn domain.

Most of the well-educated Chinese users know the google.com domain well.
To attract new users, a domain in Chinese pingyin will be more acceptable for them. Yahoo launched a yisou.com for its Chinese search engine, which means the first search or "the one" search in Chinese. Sohu.com launched a sogou.com for its search engine, which means search dog in Chinese.

More promotions for google.com blanding, a localized business modle, and a sub-blanding domain as a plus, probably will help those guys in Google Shanghai office.

Where did you get that information, any press release somewhere? I haven't seen this in the media anywhere.
