Unless I'm mistaken I think the current(old) Nexus 7 supports OTG, you just have to buy an OTG cable for it from Amazon or somewhere similar, something similar to this:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Micro-Cable-...ds=nexus+7+otg

So going by this I would assume to new one would also, seems pretty standard on devices these days.

With the original N7, you need to be rooted and use a third party app such as StickMount.

There are an app on google play for unrooted Nexus 7s, you may search "OTG disk explorer" on google play:

While I was looking into this it seems that it has the function and tries to work but most of the apps were written for standard USB.

So could you browse to the usb device using es file explorer or does it need to be rooted first?
