Inside the packaging is your tablet, a USB cable, a wall charger, and assorted documentation. Despite many YouTube videos to the contrary, this is just not that hard to open if you let gravity do some of the work for you, and work smart.

Handling

Due to the smaller form factor and the lightness of the tablet, the Google Nexus 7 is very easy to hold, and does not cause fatigue over time. While the home screen does not allow you to tilt into landscape view (like almost every app), you can shift your grip based on the app you're running. It seems to be more comfortable to hold in a portrait orientation with one hand, though your mileage may vary.
