Is there a way to get file size with SharePoint 2010 REST (via _vti_bin/ListData.svc) service?
The same question about number of items in some folder.
I don't see such fields in items corresponding to documents.

It does not seem possible to retrieve File Size using SharePoint 2010 REST Interface.

But you could consider to retrieve file size from Content-Length header via HTTP HEAD request (without downloading a file).

JavaScript example:

function getFileSize(fileUrl,success) {
        type: "HEAD",
        url: fileUrl,
        success : function(message,text,response){
                    var fileSize = response.getResponseHeader('Content-Length');

    Yes, I tried HEAD request but server responds with HTTP 501. I consider SOAP instead.
