Sony's Internet TV is at IFA, demonstrating how Google TV might make your soccer—or football, rather—watching experience more interesting. No further details on the hardware side of things, but the UI looks polished, and more importantly, pretty useful.

Stats-heavy programming like sports makes a great test scenario for the Google TV platform, allowing you to do the kind of surfing-while-watching you might attempt with a smartphone or laptop while watching a normal TV anyway.

With Sony's set, the game can be stuck in a smaller window while you trawl the net for relevant Twitter feeds, geographical data by way of Google Maps, and related websites. Sony says the Internet TV will be arriving in the US in November, so stay tuned for concrete details on specs. [TechRadar]
