    Didn't hear any mention of a potential dual chip to allow the new phone to work in Europe. Any insight?

    It wont just work in the US. It'll work in about 40 countries (Including Canada and Mexico).

    Those countries have at least one CDMA network - although as with the United States, not all networks in a specific country will necessarily be CDMA.

    Europe doesn't have any CDMA networks though, so that answers the OP's question.

    It was surprising and disappointing to hear that there is no GSM radio in the Verizon iPhone.

    It doesn't have any capability not already present in the GSM version, so there's no advantage to making it available on the European market.

    Edit: you may have meant a US customer using the phone in Europe? In that case, nope, not possible.
