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.

Nexus branded phones aren't much better. The galaxy S2 got an update to ICS (4.0) then an update to Jellybean (4.1) before updates were discontinued. That's two major updates for the S2. The Nexus S got an update to ICS (4.0) then an update to Jellybean (4.1) and google announced no 4.2 would be coming for the nexus S... That's just two major updates the the Nexus S, no better than the S2. The Nexus one was the same, update to Froyo (2.2) and gingerbread (2.3), then announced no more updates. The sad thing is the nexus series of phones really dont get more updates than anyone else, they just get to release the software update for their own devices first.
