I guess you didn't read everything I said go back. Back in 2009 there was a lot of talk about it. There's more involved than just the radio...
Anandtech does not take into account the amount ordered, and the price per unit within the deals. That greatly affects the product. This is KNOWN business and FACTS.
A $50 difference affects people perception on buying an item. GPE vs. Dev is a perfect example of them. People cried that the fact GPE was $50 more expensive than unlocked without knowing the Dev price was a $50 sale. Most people said they should buy the dev and unlocked over the GPE and put GPE on it. I see this on multiple forums including this one. Without knowing how much Google is paying per unit and if they do subsidize some of the cost to keep it under $700.
Now the AT&T and T-Mobile version are both $640 support less spectrum than the GPE version which chances are $20-30 of that discount is units order and removes headphones and case (which increases the cost per unit).
So now show me these deals
