I would like to know which Eye One models (1, 2, pro, LT...) are supported by Argyll?

The answer is yes :-)

the software, or is the hardware different too?

Two different types of hardware devices, different releases/models.
The beta release documentation has a description at the top of the
main page:

    DTP20 "Pulse"                    - "swipe" type reflective spectrometer, 
that can be used un-tethered.
    DTP22 Digital Swatchbook         - spot type reflective spectrometer.
    DTP41                            - spot and strip reading reflective 
    DTP41T                           - spot and strip reading 
reflective/tranmissive spectrometer.
    DTP51                            - strip reading reflective colorimeter.
    DTP92, DTP92Q                    - CRT display colorimeter.
    DTP94 "Optix XR" or "Optix XR2"  - display colorimeter.

    Spectrolino                      - spot reflective/emissive spectrometer
    SpectroScan                      - spot reflective/emissive, XY table 
reflective spectrometer
    SpectroScanT                     - spot reflective/emissive/transmissive, 
XY table reflective spectrometer
    Eye-One Pro                      - spot and "swipe" reflective/emissive 
    Eye-One Display 1 or 2  or LT    - display colorimeter

Sequel imaging:
     MonacoOPTIX                     - display colorimeter

    Colorimètre HCFR                 - display colorimeter

The Eye-One display 1 is the previous generation of the Eye-One Display2/LT.
The LT is a version sold with less capable software (not that this matters if
you are going to use it with Argyll).
I expect to add the Spyder 2 and Huey Colorimeters to the list with the next 
There are 3 different releases of the Eye-One pro hardware to, the "A", "B" and 
"D" models,
the main difference being that the latter has a higher sampling rate.
