The new lower pricing will assure that.

I find it hard to believe it won't handle secure Exchange servers, but
we'll see, I guess...

That will allow (future) interoperability with the networks of Verizon's
foreign masters at Vodaphone. It makes perfect sense that carriers would
migrate to a uniform voice/data standard eventually, via system upades,
without having to tear down and replace existing infrastructure.
As to the "CDMA vs. GSM" thing, Verizon won't be "switching" from CDMA to
GSM- LTE will be a 4G data overlay on their current CDMA network, much like
WCDMA (UMTS, GSM's 3G system) was an overlay on the 2G GSM system.
Verizon's LTE will let future 4G international phone owners with the
correct frequency bands roam in the US on Verizon's otherwise incompatible
network the same way some GSM 3G phones with the right bands can roam on
the 3G overlay of Japan's otherwise incompatible CDMA networks.
