I see that the newest ones have Android 4.2 OS. Are these upgradeable? If so, Is it available as a download from Google?

@tuber: Indeed they are. That's the point of a nexus device. It should come preloaded with 4.2 as the 32gb model wasn't available until after the 4.2 release. If not, it should prompt for an update after initialization.

Yes, my 16GB version has received and has been updated from 4.1 to 4.2. It's a great device for just about everything and I have no complaints. It's the best tablet I have personally used and sing it's praises at such a low cost. My friend bought a $70 tablet from somewhere and it is just about useless unless you want to hold paper down.

I am writing on one now. The 32gb came as 4.1. It did update. And it is awesome!

Best tablet for around $200 bucks. Once you get one you can't live without it

@grahams35: You won't regret it. My advice when you first get it is to unlock and root (not without risk but it's really easy to do) so you can connect USB flash drives (you'll need a USB OTG adapter) and use certain apps like Titanium Backup. If you stay stock, you'll still be among the first in the world to get new Android updates.

It's an incredibly versatile and powerful device for its price. Only now, half a year later, have I tried its excellent GPS ability. Oh, and be sure to get a case with good padding along the edges too. The Nexus 7's bezel is only plastic, and mine has a couple of small dings despite being babied.

@eidelbus: you don't need to root your Nexus to use Flash drives. I use Nexus Media Importer by Homesoft to access content on on Flash drives. They have a free app for photos only "Nexus Photo Viewer", so that you can test your USB OTG cable.

This is the OTG cable I got:

Definitely a worthwhile accessory for your Nexus 7, even if you only use it occasionally (I mainly use my Nexus 7 to read the web and play a few games, so I've only watched 5 or 6 videos this way)

@ripwave: Yes, I am aware of that (paid) app, and the cable as well (one of the reviews is mine). It's only read access, though. Rooting gives full write access to FAT32, however, and maybe someone by now has figured out NTFS. Then there's the ability to use Titanium Backup to its full extent.
