    The advantage of buying a Nexus device is you get the very latest version of Android. Right now that current version is 4.2.1

    Possibly, When I bought my Nexus about a week ago it came with 4.1.1 and then I was prompted for the updates to 4.2.1. So if you buy one now it might not have 4.2.1 on it already.

    I bought mine Saturday (Dec. 29) at a local staples. They'd just gotten a "new shipment." Mine had 4.1.1 installed, and wanted to update to 4.2.1 about 20 minutes after I'd configured it. There is hope that the one you purchase may not yet be updated. No guarantees. Though I can't imagine they're going to to back and update the warehouse stockpiles before they're shipped to the retail stores.

    Why would you have to downgrade? I haven't heard of the PS3 controller not working in 4.2.1. At least the wired 360 controller works, I know that for a fact.
