is there any way to have pre boot authentication on android phones? It would be nice if it would work with YubikeyONE's one time password mode.

Probably yes but what for ? If somebody stole your phone and could not run it he would probably flash it and reinstall android, or read raw data from mem. –  fatfredyy Nov 23 '12 at 13:39
