https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MSM7000 suggests it having a similar SoC
to Replicant-supported phones having nonfree baseband processor firmware
with access to all system memory.  It also has a GPU, I haven't found if
it has free drivers or documentation.

They are not yet creating a product without 3D graphics,
