More manufacturers unveil Windows 8 devices

A slew of upcoming Windows 8 devices — quite a few of them convertible laptop-tablet hybrids — are being unveiled this week, many of them at the IFA tech conference in Berlin.

Samsung showed off some of its wares earlier this week.

Here are more from Toshiba, Asus, Dell, HP, Sony and Lenovo.

Toshiba announced several Windows 8 touchscreen PCs. The Satellite U925t (below, shown partly and fully open) is an ultrabook convertible laptop/tablet. The Satellite P845t is a traditional, 14-inch-display clamshell laptop. The LX835 is an all-in-one desktop PC.

Dell unveiled the XPS Duo 12, a convertible laptop with a display that swivels into a tablet, and Asus unveiled the Taichi — an ultrabook with a double-sided display. Forbes has a good rundown and photos.

Meanwhile, according to various media accounts, Hewlett Packard announced the Envy X2 convertible laptop-tablet; Lenovo announced an update of its S series of IdeaPad laptops for Windows 8 and showed off a ThinkPad Tablet 2, and Sony displayed the Vaio Duo 11.
