Will Nexus 7 get USB flash drive support via a software update? If I'm not making mistake right now it's possible if rooted. Anyone confirms?
This is the most important factor before buying the Nexus 7 since you don't want to pay $50 more for that extra 8gb. You can easily hook up a flash drive if it supports.

I'm not so sure but i think you wont get the OS updates automatically since this doesn't have to do anything with custom ROMs. And this is the main obstacle preventing me from rooting.
