I'm getting mixed results with http://www.websitepulse.com/help/testtools.china-test.html but mostly it says google.com and google.cn can be reached from China. However, I don't even know if that check is reliable or not. Can anyone from China tell us more?

Sina.com also says the block was only for google.com, not google.cn, adding that things are back to normal now:

[auto-translation]
<<SAN FRANCISCO at 23:07 on June 24 news, the U.S. search engine site Google (Google.com) return to normal country visits.

From this evening around 9:30, Google.com visit abnormalities occur, including a number of Gmail, including Google can not access outside the business to return to normal around 23:05 that evening, which lasted about half an hour. Meanwhile, Google set up specifically for the Chinese market of Google.cn visit has been normal.>>

Google tells me:
<<We have received reports that most users cannot access Google.com in China. We are investigating the matter and hope that the service will be restored soon.>>
