That's Ebay pricing, pre-release by retailers, I wouldn't pay any attention to that.
Years ago, PS3 was going for $1,000+ when they first came out and nobody had them in stock.
I had a chat with someone on the DJI website this morning. See below. I'm not sure how much I should trust what was said, but this person said that the pricing should be released pretty shortly. She also explained that the TB48 will have an official flight time of 22 minutes compared to the 18 minutes for the TB47.

About the Inspire One
(05:29:52) Bob E.:
Are you familiar with the product?

(05:30:42) Bob E.:
I have a question first before I buy it.
(05:31:16) Bob E.:
Is Lightbridge GROUND STATION built into the RC?
(05:32:08) Bob E.:
Are you absolutely sure?
(05:32:55) Bob E.:
Also, How much is the TB48 and TB47 battery and what are the differences?
yes ground station of Inspire I still under process
the price for the battery will release by next week
flying time for TB48 22mins
(05:35:12) Bob E.:
What do you mean "is still under process?" for Lightbridge?
lightbridge just for FPV
not ground station
(05:37:39) Bob E.:
So the lightbridge built into the Inspire One provides FPV to the C1 Remote Controller but cannot provide Ground Station capability at this time?
another new lightbridge ,
(05:41:06) Bob E.:
Another lightbridge what?
because we use the update lightbridge ,
better then the old one
(05:43:52) Bob E.:
So will the Inspire 1 work with old lightbridge or only with new one?
only with new
already built indise
(05:45:47) Bob E.:
Will old GroundStation work with new one built inside Inspire 1?
