I didn't claim to be a developer, nor am I pining away waiting for a $200 coupon to buy a Pre 2. I paid full price. But aside from that there are a lot of developers that haven't yet produced or published an app. So I said these things as well.

There are also people who have not yet submitted an app due to the lack of the necessary API's to do what they have in mind.
Not to mention, they unveiled a new dev tool at the Dev Day in NYC called Enyo, and if you had an app that you wanted avaialbe across the spectrum of WebOS devices in the future you would be wise to wait for it.
All of that to say, a published app isn't the only reason one would need/qualify for a dev device.
But for now, I'm off to Dr. my Pre 2 again so others will know whether or not their USB partitions are safe in the process or if there is a bug that needs to be identified and fixed. I am working with Palm support on it as well. Good thing I didn't wait for that coupon.
