CyanogenMod 10.1 Nightlies Now Available For The Barnes & Noble Nook HD And Nook HD+

Last week we reported that the CyanogenMod team had added almost a dozen new phones and tablets to their list of officially-supported devices, including Barnes & Noble's increasingly affordable Nook HD and Nook HD+. At the time the B&N tablet builds weren't quite ready, but nightly ROM builds just showed up for both the 7-inch and 9-inch versions. Go forth, ROM addicts, and flash to your heart's content.

CyanogenMod still uses baffling codenames on the Get.CM download page, so if you're looking for the builds in the left-hand menu, search for "hummingbird" (Nook HD) and "ovation" (Nook HD+).

Google just released textbooks to the Google Play Store yesterday, and oddly enough, there's a synergistic update to the Google Play Books client available now. This version unsurprisingly expands the notation capabilities, as well as adding some education-friendly capabilities like book rentals and contextual copying.

Images Of A "Tegra Tab" Leaked: NVIDIA's Possible Unofficial Sequel To The Nexus 7

The Nexus 7 2013 is awesome in just about every way, building on the strengths of the original to become an easy choice for the best 7" Android tablet on the market at the moment. But there's at least one company that isn't altogether happy with it: NVIDIA. Their Tegra 3 chip powered the first Nexus 7, but Google switched to Qualcomm for the new version... a decision which hasn't come without problems of its own.

Koush Demonstrates Streaming To Chromecast With Any Media App On CyanogenMod

HTC hasn't completely forgotten its older devices as it continues talking up the HTC One.

The software features are essentially the same as you'd see on other HTC devices running 4.2.2.

Textbooks Now Live In Google Play Books, Still Eats Into Your Beer Money

As promised at Google's recent event, textbooks have arrived in the Play Store. They have been tacked on as a sub-section of Play Books, not a completely new area of the store. At present, there is no way to filter within textbooks only, but search seems to work fairly well for finding books on a particular subject.
