Why do so many people get the Developer's Edition? Which is better?
From what I see the GPE is pure Droid, no Sense...right? Only the DEV has sense (apart from retail)

For me...DEV is $50 bucks cheaper. I can then convert it to GPE when needed.

HTC website now has both unlocked and DE available with shipment within 1-2 weeks. And of course not much explanation for most people what's the difference between the two. Both are backordered. What's funny is HTC has listed the wrong info under the specs..

Cell Phone Specifications
Processor Name Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800

You would think their marketing department would be able to get it together, but sadly no.. This is their flagship phone that is supposed to help save the company profits and yet they don't list the correct and most up to date chipset.

DE and Unlocked will not work with Verizon. As far as I know, it seems that the DE and Unlocked versions offered by HTC website lack the HSPA+ band which T-mobile uses. GPE seems redundant since you can flash that on the unlocked ones anyway. So for T mobile customers it seems the puzzle is: Wait for T-mobile's version so you can have all the bands T-mobile uses or get the unlocked versions but lack the HSPA+ which is offers a larger coverage area.

Copied from ZDnet review

"The HTC One M8 will be priced at $199 and $249 with a two-year contract, depending on the carrier. T-Mobile will eventually have it available beginning on April 11 for $0 down with the full price of $636 paid interest-free over a two-year period. The T-Mobile version will also support WiFi Calling, which is a great utility for those who are traveling or have a weak signal at home.

There will be a Google Play Edition that works with AT&T and T-Mobile in the US, available for $699. It will be up for pre-order on the Google Play Store and available in silver. I could order a Google Play Edition device, but I think an HTC One without Sense isn't worth the price, due in large part to the camera technology.

A Developer Edition is also going to be available on HTC.Com as a SIM unlocked model for $649. It's based on the AT&T SKU, so there are limits for T-Mobile customers."

Probably on or near April 3rd (When HTC themselves gets them).

HTC has them on back order because they haven't had any yet. No Dev/Unlocked phones will ship until 4/3.
