There's nothing wrong with owning a Nook, though if you've outgrown the custom OS and want to transform it into a standard Android tablet, you have options, one of them being a Nook-to-Android (N2A) card. Even better, the N2A team just updated its software to Android 4.4 KitKat, which is the latest version of Google's open source mobile operating system currently available.
HTC One promises an update to KitKat within 90 days
Android 4.4 (KitKat) has arrived, having hitched a ride on top of Google's Nexus 5 smartphone that was made available to order yesterday. That's great if you plan to purchase a Nexus 5, but what if you already own a smartphone and aren't in a position to upgrade? More specifically, what about HTC One owners? Well, the good news is that HTC apparently confirmed plans to port KitKat over to its One smartphone.
It looks like the rumors were true. The Nexus 5 manufactured by LG is now available for sale in the Google Play store at a base price of $349 for the 16GB model in black or white. The 32GB version is $399, with both phones shipping on Nov. 8.
The chefs at Google have decided against going with the codename Key Lime Pie to describe the next version of Android and instead have entered into a licensing agreement with Nestle to dub Android 4.4 "Kit Kat" after the popular chocolate candy bar. Google's Sundar Pichai spilled the beans in a Google+ post in which he also announced that Android has now surpassed 1 billion device activations.
