I recently contemplated trading-in my Asus TF700 to Amazon and buying a TF701. But, I started thinking about the up coming Nvidia Tegra K1 that should be releasing in the last quarter of this year. I know a Chinese company (Xiaomi) has released a 7 inch tegra k1 tablet and that Google is working on a 8.9 inch tegra k1 tablet. I really would prefer a 10 inch tablet. My questions are, do I wait for a 10 inch tegra k1 to be released later this year (hopefully) or go ahead and get the TF701? Does anyone have anymore info on the tegra k1 being released on the 10 inch platform? Will it be this year? If anyone has any recommendations or more info please let me know. Any advice welcomed.

Your decision... Just realize that if you buy the latest and greatest right after release you're also an early adapter potentially helping the OEM to work out all the initial bugs...
I never buy a tech device right after release. I wait 3 months to see if any major bugs show up.
But then... I don't care about having the latest and greatest. I care about my toys to work as I need them to.
The TF701 fits the bill. The tablet is perfect (the dock is not but I can live with it) and I'm pretty sure I won't be craving anything new for the next year - and more than likely longer than that.

Well the advances in k1 look good and will probably kick the pants off anything we currently have. You would probably have no trouble trading this for a k1 as well.

I doubt it. Nvidia is focusing on gaming and that's not what I use my tablet for.

The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S is a beast. Best Display available to date.

K1 is surely a performance beast. But, it is also a battery-hunger monster with current fabrication (28nm).

Xiaomiís tablet Mi Pad which has a tegra k1 cpu is suppose to give 11 hours of video and 86 hours of music streaming. Now I realize these are not real world test but it should give at least 9 hours of video play which I think is good. Am I wrong?
