The old Nexus 7 is still available, but Google is no longer selling it. However, the company will continue to support it with updates for the foreseeable future. If $230 is too rich for your blood, Walmart is currently selling the old model for $150!

One of the few notable Android 4.3 additions is the Multi-User Restricted Profiles feature, which allows you to set up accounts with extremely limited access.

Ah, remember when the Nexus 7 was just a blue, yellow, red, green, and black box? No? Too bad. It was a glorious time.
