this somehow validates T.Ahonen claims about Nokia having deals ready to push Meego bit time in China.

That China Mobile was a MeeGo partner[1] is not a claim. Just google.

[1] The by far biggest carrier on earth. When Nokia switched to Lumia they denied Lumia to enter there market, forced Nokia to produce a Lumia running Symbian rather then WP and I would not wonder if they actively support JollaMobile. LG, Intel and Samsung are other candidates which may have an interest to support Jolla. Tizen and MeeGo are sisters, Jolla already announced support for HTML5 apps and Tizen 1.0 ships Qt.
