I think with all the hype from Vz on LTE, to announce a CDMA iphone is like going back in time. Why would someone want to be locked into a phone on a dead-end technology for 3 years as LTE starts taking off. If it would be a LTE/CDMA phone, fine. But by announcing a CMDA only iPhone, it would diminish their message on the need for the high speed you'll get on LTE.
My bet is still on a LTE iPhone (something Apple has to be working on anyways in order to compete with all the other LTE android phones). If not, they will lose Vz all together as people load up on Android/LTE.
