It will be the real McCoy.

I've had an original Pre and a Pre Plus. I also noticed how cheap the Pre 2's were on ebay and figured that they may be Developer devices. A contact of mine at HP confirmed that they indeed get them at cost price from the Employee Purchase Programme and that most of the ones on eBay are likely to be from HP employees.
I don't work for HP but we do buy a lot of HP kit and our company also has an HP Employee Purchase Programme. I found the Pre 2 there for £99, so bought it yesterday afternoon and it arrived on my desk at lunch time!
Loving it so far, synced everything up just charging it right now. Fantastic for £99 with free delivery too!.
Stock levels definitely have dropped, when I ordered mine it said 78 available, this morning it was showing 17, right now it's disappeared! So I guess they may be out of stock!
