What is it? Does anybody know? Does G thinks that all of the pages on my site are duplicates?
It's pretty much unique content. I searched for similar pages on the web, and found none.
Would appreciate any thought...

This looks like duplicate content filter - even if your pages _are_ different, too many similiar content like headers, menus, footers sometimes can trigger the filter, which is very sensible right now. It may happen, if the individual text on page is smaller than, I'd guess, 20-30% of total page content. Check the text-only version of the page to look how many individual content they have.
no. pages are really different than each other. every page lists a few widgets- in the same layout, but different in the text.
there are no similar pages on the web. i searched via G and Y!. there are, however, mentions of the specific widgets at competitors' sites as well-
but, for some reason, it looks like they dont get the same "only 2 results effect" when I do the site:example.com for competitor.
My "belief" is that for the actual displayed results the similar content filters are pushed to the max (e.g. anything over 20% similar is penalised for ranking purposes - anything over 5% similar is penalised for display purposes)
Did that make sense?
