At the IFA trade show in Berlin this week, manufacturers from Samsung to Lenovo showed off new tablets, smartphones and ultrabooks, many of them with convertible designs.
Here's ZDNet's round-up of all the major tech announcements:
Samsung ATIV Tab
Samsung showed off a range of Windows 8-powered mobile devices at IFA in Berlin - two Smart PC hybrid tablet-notebooks, a 10.1-inch tablet and a smartphone.
Samsung showed off its first Windows Phone 8 device, the ATIV, minus any pricing or availability information.
The Korean manufacturer's 'phablet' now comes with Jelly Bean, beefed-up internals and a more functional stylus.
The Galaxy Note II tablet runs Android Jelly Bean 4.1 on a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, and its S Pen stylus can now be used for new actions such as bringing up email previews.
Sony Xperia phones
Samsung's first Windows RT tablet is thin, light and potentially a good start for this new class of Windows computer.
Samsung unveiled a new line of Smart PCs and other devices today under the ATIV brand name, all ready to ship worldwide when Windows 8 launches in October. One thing that won't be included is a rumored Start menu replacement utility.
Sony has unleashed a volley of new products at IFA in Berlin, with several key releases for Android fans and those gearing up for Windows 8 - including a tablet-ultrabook hybrid.
Sony Vaio Duo 11
The company has unleashed a volley of new products at IFA in Berlin, with several key releases for Android fans and those gearing up for Windows 8.
The Windows 8-powered Vaio Duo 11 is very much aimed at the road warrior, working either as a large tablet or small ultrabook.
The Japanese manufacturer's new Android phones - the Xperia T, V and J - all look very similar, while Sony's revamped Android tablet is a more stylish affair than before.
Lenovo Yogapad 13
If you want to know what this fall's Windows 8 hardware menu will look like, look at Dell's three new models. The trio cover all the bases, from tiny Windows RT tablets to a giant all-in-one with a Retina-like quad-HD display.
The company has updated its Android tablet range with the S2110, A2107 and A2109 models, bringing few surprises.
The U920T, shown off at IFA in Berlin, is Toshiba's 12.5-inch stab at the Windows 8 laptop-tablet hybrid concept.
The 11.6-inch Envy x2 runs on Intel's new Clover Trail processor and offers a sleek take on the current hybrid craze.
ZTE Grand X IN
The Grand X IN will be the first Intel-powered smartphone to be released in Europe by a manufacturer, rather than an operator.
The flood of convertible tablets and ultrabooks at IFA shows we're going through a creative boom in the evolution of the PC. There are many options out there — which ones will pull in the buyers?
