If you've always wanted to see how Windows Phone works, or if you have a WP8 and want to see some of the new features from the upcoming 8.1 update, then try out the cool new Nokia emulator:

http://try.nokia.com

(should work from smartphone or browser, contains video content though so be careful if you're on 3G/4G!)

Also, as I know this will be asked, .... second week of august is the date i'm being given for OTA rollout to current in-market devices.

So is that rollout just for Lumia/Nokia phones? or is that the target date for all phones?

Cool, but surely whoever designed it would have a routing to replace all those underscores with spaces?

What browser are you using where it shows you the underscores? Do you have script etc blocked?  They should be getting replaced by script/css/whatever.  Works OK for me in IE11, Chrome, Firefox and WP8.1...
