It's not unusual for one to be able to get small quantities of a 
pre-release product if you have a relationship with the 
manufacturer/sales engineers. Typically it's bound up with an NDA, and 
the datasheet is NDA, and you basically have an agreement that if it 
turns out poorly so they can redesign/retool/fix it, you tell the mfr 
about it, and don't go broadcasting to the world that this new part is junk.

In otherwords, not everything is available through distribution and 
mail-order.

This is one of the arguments I make as to why attending in-person 
conferences is a good thing - that's how you make those personal 
connections.
