    For a limited time, includes £15 of credit to spend in the Play store, as well as some great free content like your own copy of Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The 16GB is also now available from eBuyer with free P&P but no credit. (Source)

    USB flash drives aren't officially supported.

    MHL and USB-OTG on the Nexus 7 - Mounting USB Storage Not Supported
    Since posting the Nexus 7 mini review, I've gotten a lot of e-mails asking about whether USB-OTG for storage was currently supported or would be supported in the shipping software load. I've done some asking around and believe I have the final word now.

    USB-OTG is indeed supported on the Nexus 7, however as anyone has used USB-OTG knows, whether peripherals or devices work is a function of the host OS and drivers. On the Nexus 7, using a mouse and keyboard is supported, and I saw Google using an Ethernet to microUSB adapter with the Nexus 7 (which I borrowed for my Galaxy Nexus) as well. Unfortunately mounting USB storage natively is not supported on the Nexus 7. Hopefully rooted users will be able to use StickMount with the Nexus 7 and make this work. In addition, MHL is not supported on the Nexus 7, which isn't very surprising since adding MHL requires another package and would increase BOM cost. (Source)

    Does anyone think app encryption will be an issue for schools buying multiple Jelly Bean tablets?

    Beginning with Jelly Bean, paid Google Play apps will be encrypted with a device-specific code before they are delivered. Encrypted apps are intended to protect developers by preventing piracy. (Source)

    Not sure, but the Nexus 10 might have it? You could always use your smartphone's 3G connection or get a MiFi.

    Personally I would take Android 4.1, the better display and quad-core processor over an SD card slot.
