1. Android depends on there being willing volunteers to do the work. That won't be organised by the Foundation (so far as I know.) IIUC, and I'm not an Android techie, it should be easier work on the ARMv7 but it won't be trivial.
2. No further info, but the RaspPi 2 still has the connector.
I believe work is proceeding, but I don't know at what pace.
3. In the Element14 Q&A, Ebon said that the RaspPi 2 takes about the same power as the B. The extra cores take about the same amount of power as was saved with the more efficient power regulation on the B+.

Good question. Given that this "Windows 10" thing is turning out to be just a bad joke (for a variety of reasons), the relevant question is: Is the new Pi powerful enough (CPU, RAM) to run real (x86) Windows (not any version of this "10" abomination) effectively under some emulator (e.g., QEMU, etc) ?
That's the real question.
No. Given the 1.8-2x speed increase, we might expect to get an x86 emulation about equivalent to a 120MHz '486.
1GB of memory is not enough for any recent versions of Windows, and you'll only have a fraction of that available for an emulator.
Windows 95 may run fairly cleanly, but of course it wouldn't be licensable.
