The storm 2 will be out on vodafone just like the storm, but as far as the tour there just wouldn't be any point, the carrier would have to go through their whole approvals process for a product that offered them less than the bold they were already selling.
As far as the tour+wifi thats been rumoured, then maybe we'll also see a gsm variant because it's a slightly different form factor from the bold 9700 and some people may prefer a slightly larger device, but they wouldn't just launch the tour+wifi in europe since the cdma radio would add cost for almost zero benefit.
