There aren't any more details on when and how much, but T-Mobile is pumping up fans for a phablet release.

SAN DIEGO--T-Mobile hasn't announced pricing information or a concrete release date for its version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (II), but a press release issued today promises the 5.5-inch smartphone/tablet hybrid "in the coming weeks."

The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean "phablet" is notable for its 1.6GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor, its immense display, its S Pen stylus, and the productivity and creativity software that goes with it. Building incrementally on the Samsung Galaxy S3, the Note 2 offers many of the same features, but expect it to be pricier than the smaller GS3; I'm guessing at least $50 more for each capacity.

The Note 2, which comes in Titanium Gray and Marble White colors, will ride T-Mobile's fastest HSPA+ 42 network.
