I've been running Android N Dev Preview 3 (Beta) on my 6P. I've found it very stable in general. Had some crashing with Hangouts with a restart the only way to fix. But, pretty stable for a beta. 
With the announcement that Android N is now available as a "beta" release, purportedly with daily use stability, is it time to load it up on the Nexus you carry in your pocket every day? After using it on every compatible device ourselves, we have some definitive answers for you.

We've spent a lot of time this past year wondering if and when Google would bite the bullet and just build its own Android phone for consumers to take on the iPhone directly — there have been hints...

I've been caught out by hitting backspace and going to the earlier web page and losing everything I've typed. No more!
Power users love shortcuts. Especially when managing multiple operations across several apps, keyboards allow quick access to specific actions with handy combinations of buttons, and some have beco…

Anyone with a Chromebook will confirm how great seamless updates are. Bring seamless updates to Android is a huge step forward in mobile security. 
Google has detailed a new capability you can look forward to in Android N, but it's not entirely new. If you've used a Chromebook for any length of ti... by Ryan Whitwam in Android N, News

This use to be possible on earlier versions of Android with Car Mode. Good to see Google has finally seen sense and is allowing Android Auto to run on phones.
At its I/O conference today, Google announced that Android Auto is going to be available to a lot more people this year. How? You're not going to need a car or third-party head unit that supports...

Visited for a monthly meeting we hold at the hotel. Staff always friendly, food is excellent, especially the cheese cake. Never stayed over so no idea what the rooms are like but for business meetings it's perfect.

Been many times, Very good mainland food and generally great service. Ignore Robin's review he clearly thought this was a Cantonese restaurant. It's not. It's mainland Chinese, food is for sharing. If you're after set menus go elsewhere.

Great market with lots of stalls selling lots of different foods. Had noodles at a noodle bar and they were pretty good and purchased some honeycomb from one of the vendors which was delicious.
