Default [Q] Google Fast Touch 10" tablet

Does anyone know anything about this tablet? My wife just got one and wanted to see if porting KitKat was possible on this device?
It comes with Android 4.2.

The tablet appears to be just another no-name brand tablet , the Google in the branding name is misleading as the device has nothing to do with Google (It's not at all an official Google branded product) other then it runs Android. As far as porting KitKat is concerned, it is possible but it will unforutnately be difficult without an official kernel source from the manufacture or your own knowledge of compiling AOSP KitKat or say Cyanogenmod 11 for an unsupported device.

If I was able to obtain kernel source would it be possible for you or anyone to build KitKat for it? How do I obtain kernel source?

In the case of your device you would have to contact the manufacture and ask them to provide you with the kernel source code, and even then if they did you would still have to undergo the process of extracting the files for your device and fixing any broken features that would likely arise during the KitKat building process.
