Don't you mean 330 ft runs?

10GBASE-T, or IEEE 802.3an-2006, is a standard released in 2006 to provide 10 Gbit/s connections over unshielded or shielded twisted pair cables, over distances up to 100 metres (330 ft).[25] Category 6a is required to reach the full distance of 100 metres (330 ft) and category 6 will reach a distance of 55 metres (180 ft).

ok ok so for legacy installations you might only reach 180ft.

So you're going to use your phone as a remote controller (remember this device only streams media off of google play nothing local and it has no user interface so you need another android tablet to do this) to choose songs and then rather than just using your phone to play the media you play it through the Nexus Q but use bluetooth so you're stuck in one room and can't move around...

Your assumption is it wont used signed firmware, or that the station device wont detect your interference as a poor quality channel and switch to another access point to route around it. The microcells I've used use a vpn tunnel back to the network, if the firmware is signed and the key to vpn back is within a smartcard type device and thus unextractable, how are you going to do a MITM attack when every device will immediately disregard your own connection? not to mention the fines the FCC would rain down on you for doing that (for a picocell to work it would have to be using the normal licensed spectrum and not the wifi band)

If they were going to be releasing 4.2 for the GS2 then we probably would have seen it come out two months ago when 4.1 came out for the s2. And 4.1 is old 4.2 is the current one, google announced the Nexus S would not be getting 4.2, thus the nexus series of phones only gets two updates, just like any other series of phones google or otherwise.
