Intel and Yahoo were making all kinds of noise about on-screen TV widgets back at IDF, but it looks like Sony's beating them to the punch -- select Japanese Bravia sets can already browse the web and run a few official widgets through the XMB interface, but now there's also an SDK for third-party developers. Sony's taking an Apple-like approach and requiring devs to submit them for approval before making them available to Bravia owners, but it's promising that validation won't be lengthy -- hopefully that means it won't be totally capricious in approving them and yanking them as well. The SDK and widgets are Japan-only for now, but there are hints we'll see them worldwide eventually -- the sooner the better, guys.
