Why are Windows Phone 8 based models not supported here?
This includes quad-core models(Lumia 1520) and Lumia 520.
Even Lumia 930 is not available here.(Why?)

Because it's a preview. I'm sure they're doing all they can to get it on other devices as well, remember, they said the list will grow over time. It's not just the OS, they have to make and test new firmware as well for each device, so it's not just something they can do all at once. Hence why the preview wasn't ready for the announcement and is only available for select devices at this point.

Because those phones would need partition stitching for the preview to install, and this has not been fully implemented right now. cf: https://twitter.com/GabeAul/status/565943471446298624

Well, it's the first beta released to the public for phones. I may be open for more later.

What is the Phone Recovery tool used for? To backup Windows Phone or to restore Windows Phone to 8.1?

Looks like they decided splash screens for apps are too mainstream and replaced them with a screen in the accent color.

I'm pretty sure this won't be around in the RTM anymore.

I'm quite excited to try this out, unfortunately the Lumia 920 is not (yet) supported.
