    Is it verizon unlocked?

    CDMA+GSM? Also would this work on AT&T without issues or missing bands?

    confused by the breakdown of differences in radios

    i know AT&T/T-Mo is Intel and Verizon/Sprint is Qualcomm supposedly?

    Verizon covers all bands. It's the one to get. CDMA and GSM

    That is correct. Also Verizon's versions come unlocked.

    if you dont care about CDMA, is the AT&T model just as compatible internationally GSM wise as Verizon?

    same bands and all?

    Excellent question. Also, are there any advantages to the AT&T model? For example, does it have better battery life?

    I would say Qualcomm just guessing, the CDMA+GSM inclusive model (verizon) would be way to go

    not that Intel is a sketchy company haha, but Qualcomm just has such a track record with mobile device radios,

    The Verizon model not only has US CDMA, but also TD-SCDMA that works in China

    Otherwise, all the GSM bands are the same.
