Default Is the AT&T M8 converted to gpe the same as the GPE?

Does it have the same bands?

Which one should I buy if I have to buy both at full price?

I'm 99.9% sure the hardware between the AT&T M8 and the GPE are identical.

They are all the same. If you plan on buying full retail just get the developer edition from HTC. It's bootloader is already unlock and rooting it won't void your warranty. You'll get LTE with almost every GSM carrier (T-Mobile, AT&T etc) but you can't use the phone on CDMA carriers

Converting the developer edition to a GPE would make it the same device.

Wait, so if I converted my ATT device, it's warranty won't be voided?

No it will be voided because the bootloader isn't unlocked directly from the factory. if you unlock your bootloader on the AT&T M8 you would need to relock it if you send your device in for repairs.

If you buy the developer edition the bootloader is already unlocked and the factory won't void your warranty if you root your device. You can send it back to HTC with no problems.
