I've been mantaining this wiki-page for exactly that specific purpose:
http://libreplanet.org/wiki/LinuxLibre:Devices_that_require_non-free_firmware

There is also a blog post about this topic that I have written a while ago:

"Coordinating efforts towards free firmware implementations"
http://jucablues.blogspot.com/2010/12/coordinating-efforts-towards-free.html

I would like to know which device you're investigating. Maybe I can
help with that, but I'll have to have more info in order to proceed.

happy hacking,
Felipe Sanches
