I saw the first Ubuntu Phone is now available:

I am interested in how free & open it is. Does somebody here have more

Questions that I have:
Is the bootloader open source?
How well is the device seperated from the modem?
Are non-free programms or drivers needed?
Which non-free firmware is loaded?

Maybe somebody mad a review?
