Calling all touchscreens: Windows 8/RT tablets roundup

Calling all touchscreens: Windows 8/RT tablets roundup
The IFA 2012 expo is fully underway, and yesterday we were focused on such promising handsets like the Galaxy Note II, Sony's new Xperia T, V and J, as well as the Samsung ATIV S Windows Phone 8 handset.

Yet the focus of the event seems to be Windows 8, whose release is coming soon, and its Modern UI interface, created exclusively with touch interaction in mind. 

Be it ARM-based Windows RT slates with detachable keyboards and Microsoft Office as a bonus, or full-fledged Windows 8 machines with "Intel Inside", industry juggernauts like Asus, Sony, Samsung, HP, Dell, Lenovo and Toshiba all came up with innovative designs, combining the mobility of a tablet, with the productivity of a physical keyboard. 

We round them up for you in the slideshow below, in the order announced, as we notice you are getting confused by the flood of such devices coming from all directions. Which one would you lay cash on?
