Google Nexus 7 owners have started to report getting access to Android 4.1.2, a moderate upgrade that brings one significant new feature to this tablet: a landscape-oriented homescreen.
The homescreens on other Android-based tablets support both landscape and portrait mode, but not the Nexus 7. That will change when OS 4.1.2 is installed.
When this upgrade will be widely available is not yet known. Google has not made a formal announcement, but reports of this new version appearing as an optional upgrade are coming out of Australia.
