Android Market was down for the count - Update

Something took Android Market offline early this morning. With reports from staff members and Twitter, Android Market was unavailable around the world, including Europe, India and North America. Definitely not a device issue, with all devices affected and displaying server errors, it was down late Friday night/early Saturday morning (Eastern time). Users on twitter are speculating (hilariously) either terrorism or elite hackers. It's probably safe to say it's a bit more innocuous than that.

Neowin is in contact with Google to see if we can bring you anything more.

If you had trouble, let us know. We'll be updating this story as it develops.

[Update] The market is back online.

I never saw it entirely down, but it was acting weird last night. It wouldn't find things I knew were there when I searched.

Kinda down in America for me. It only shows some apps, and no ticker of popular apps at the home screen. Total apps that I have access to is around 50.

I just updated an app without any problems. So it seems to work fine in the Netherlands.
Is search working for you? When I search for something, I get an error.

EDIT: Also when browsing through categories. I might be able to access app pages just fine.

Search isn't working... It either returns no results or something completely different than what I was searching for.
