You don't need to use those peripherals. I find the device quite
functional without them. To make the device even more useful, the device
would benefit from the success of this high priority GNU project:

I verified this information with the project, and can provide full
details if deemed interesting.

This is no worse than most of my other machines. I try to do my best
buying hardware that work with free software, and avoid using the
hardware parts requiring non-free blobs.

In the case of the GTA04 the modem is a completely separate system that
communicates with the main processor with a serial USB connection. There
is no memory sharing.
