Eugh, that usage notice is horrible. Isn't this exactly what free software should be delivering us from? It really distresses me that Google's "Nexus" line, despite being explicitly not user-hostile, don't demand acceptable terms for their hardware drivers. But then I suppose it's in their short-term interest to keep things on Android. Great...
I'd like to imagine that the explicit disregard for peoples' freedom when it comes to phones and tablets would discourage people from buying them, and have the knock-on effect of doing less environmental and social damage (here meaning poor labour conditions). But apparently not.
