    Will the year old nexus 7 be able to run the new 4.3 and are we getting the new version when it becomes available?

    Sure it will
    New moto x is also mid range and not that impressive specs but it will be running on 4.3

    definitely and i think it will improve on sensitivity&speed, especially when we have reports that 4.3 is improving touch sensitivity on N4

    4.3 is out for the N7 (original) in both WiFi and Mobile flavors...

    You can download the Factory Image right now: https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images

    or

    Wait for the OTA (Over The Air) Update that should be rolling out soon.

    They specifically said in the conference this morning that the update would be going out to the original Nexus 7 starting today.

    will downloading the image instead of waiting for an OTA update force me to do a factory reset?

    Thanks. I guess I will just wait since I will be picking up the new N7 anyway.

    There's a guide in the Rooting section. Flashing a factory image requires wiping your device, though. If you rather wait, the OTA will be pushed out to everyone in due time, no wiping necessary.

    Will we be able to sideload JB 4.3 on the 2012 Nexus 7 because I think sideloading will not wipe the data on your device? That's how I had updated to 4.2.2 last time.

    If you can get your hands on the OTA update file (NOT the same as the factory image).. Yes you can sideload it easily using adb and stock recovery.
