I think it all depends on how big the bezel is. It could be the same size as the current 10" tablets if it has a smaller bezel around the screen.

Well compadres I'm hoping it is actually a 10.6" screen size as the more the better! I know the 9.7 of my iPad as compared to the 10.1 of my Prime sure leaves a lot to be desired.

But I bet lighter when adding a TF dock as compared to the Microsoft keyboard.

Welcome over Mickey!

And yeah, that is a heavy tablet....just under 2 lbs? I know my 1.5 lb TF101 feels a bit heavy after a while.
