No, the CDMA HTC 8X that VZW has still not even officially announced they will sell is a world phone. I wish people would stop putting products on VZW's shelves until they actually announce them. Other than a few typical comments of support and platitudes by executives in the past, VZW remains as silent as ever about its commitment to Windows Phone and the launch date is now only a few weeks away. This is in stark contrast to their never ending information about everything Apple and Android. Until they announce a product with a release date, it is not real. I thought people were disappointed enough by VZW the last time around with Windows Phone 7 to not engage in the same routine of clutching to little (unconfirmed by VZW) bits of hope. I am a generally satisfied VZW customer with a HTC Trophy but I wouldn't bet the ranch on anything when it comes to their support for the platform.

To date, we know HTC has applied for FCC certifications for a CDMA 8X. That does not place a product on anyone's shelf. RIM went through the certifications for the 4G version of their Blackberry Playbook too a few months ago. Do you see either an AT&T or VZW version for sale? Certification means it can be sold in the US, not that anyone has yet agreed to sell it.
