All this week, we have been reported on a host of upcoming products that are being made to work especially with Windows 8, thanks to the IFA trade show in Berlin. Today, Acer joined the Windows 8 reveal party with a host of upcoming desktop, notebook, tablet and hybrid devices made to work with Microsoft's next operating system.

Acer's press releases include details on the company's notebook-tablet hybrid device, the Acer Iconia W510. The 10.1 inch device can connect with an optional keyboard dock that will extend its battery life for up to 18 hours. There's also a micro-HDMI port and a microSD card port.

Acer will also release touch-screen Windows 8 notebooks under the Acer Aspire V5 Series brand. There will be two notebooks, 14 inch and 15.6 inch models, both with Intel processors and NVIDIA graphics. There will also be touch screens on the Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook laptops, 13.3 inch and 11.6 inch, that will have 13 and nine hours of battery life, respectively.

The Acer Aspire M3 Ultrabook will also have a touch screen and a frameless 15.6 inch display, and can include an NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M graphics chip inside.
