I'm rather curious as to why HTC or for that matter other makers have to make different build of a particular model for all 3 variants.

Why is that only for Sprint & Verizon that phone makers have to make specials versions of Android for them? Why can't International versions be used on them?

I think the international version is made the way it is because there are lesser restrictions on devices abroad.

Even it comes to the US, Sprint and Verizon devices need to be manufactured differently for them to work on the carriers network.
