Will Windows phone 8 be a International (world) phone?

I am a owner of a HTC touch pro 2 w/windows mobile 6.5.3 .

My phone is a international world phone so i can use it in countries like costa rica that use GSM.

The Windowsphone 7 did not have that so i did not buy it & it flopped.

Does anyone know if the new Windowsphone 8 is useable overseas or will it become a flop like WP7?

Should i wait to find out or go with the Note 2?

CDMA only phones are crap !

Thanks for reaching out to us. Sorry, but it has not been disclosed as of yet whether or not our Windows 8 devices will be international capable. As we come closer to the launch dates, more details will be provided. Features that have been disclosed so far show as; both the Samsung and HTC smartphones will offer our 3G and 4G LTE and impressive lists of features, including dual cameras enabling video chat, dual-core processors for enhanced internal speed between applications and support for expandable external memory.

Your "impressive lists of features" is something that all the other carriers have already. I am seriously considering switching to AT&T prepaid for $50/mo just so I can get a Windows Phone 8 device. I'm sure you don't care since I'm just one person and you've got thousands satisfied with the iPhone5.

From above:

"... both the Samsung and HTC smartphones will offer our 3G and 4G LTE and impressive lists of features, including dual cameras enabling video chat, dual-core processors for enhanced internal speed between applications and support for expandable external memory."

Are you sure about that?  Expandable memory is important to me for mp3's, but from what I saw about the HTC "Tiara" model in news items yesterday, that model doesn't seem to support expanded memory.  I was hoping that the smaller form factor phone would have expandable memory.
