Google will house their servers in N9?

Has Google finally decided Malaysia to be one of location to host their servers in the Asian region? Our previous Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi met with Google CEO Eric Schmidt at the Davos conference in Switzerland in 2008 and the outcome was positive. Naturally Malaysia is the best choice since formed the highest group of Google users in South-East Asia.
