I think that they actually ship with 4.0 or 4.1 and you get an OTA upgrade to 4.2. Mine was upgraded two days ago to 4.2. There have been a lot of complaints on vendors being slow on upgrades with Android or not doing upgrades at all. I went with Nexus products (I have a Galaxy Nexus too) hoping that Google would do a better job on updates than the carriers and manufacturers.
The Nexus 7 is a fantastic deal in what you get for the money. Google is basically selling these things at cost and the only other vendor willing to do that these days is Amazon.
