Pantone vs xrite Eyeone Display2--any difference?

Hi all,

I'm planning to purchase Eyeone Display2. I've noticed that some retailers (amazon, have two 'versions' for sale--one that is Pantone, and one that is X-rite. The Pantone version is significantly less expensive than the x-rite, and I can't find any info to explain why this would be the case (I know that Pantone and x-rite are basically the same company, right?). I think the Pantone version has been discontinued which could account for the price difference, but what I want to know is whether or not they are one in the same product. I'd love to be able to spend less $$ for the same product if the only difference is the mfr. name on the box.

Anyone out there know if they're the same or different?

If everything happens for a reason, what's the reason?!
