It will be difficult to tell if it is a true GPe. I'm not sure you can distinguish between a purchased GPe or a converted GPe. If it boots into sense then that's a sure sign it's not.

I believe that the google edition is hardware identical to the ATT version, that is what is probably being picked up by ATT.
