Default [Q] HTC One (M8) Google Play Edition bootloader unlocked?

Hello,

I see that HTC One (M8) Developer Edition comes with bootloader unlocked as per:

blog.htc.com/2013/03/htc-one-developer-edition

Does HTC One (M8) Google Play Edition comes with bootloader unlocked as well?

The Google Play web page play.google.com/store/devices/details?id=htc_m8 only mentions that the phone is unlocked (vis-a-vis carrier), but does not reference bootloader at all.

I'm looking for a phone, that would be easier to root.

Thank you!
