Just to let you know - Android could be used w/o any registration and 
without any vendor-locked components. Unfortunately it is more 
exception, then case - many chipset vendors are not opening driver 
sources, especially for modem and OpenGL hw. I am not expecting anything 
very different with Ubuntu OS - it is hardware vendor policy and there 
is no way to prevent this from from OS vendor. And yes, i didnt mention 
fact that every device do have closed source GSM stack, what making much 
more problems for privacy then, for example, closed source video driver. 
And again, Firefox OS, Android or QTMoko will not solve this issue (
