TransferJet is Coming Soon, Learn Why

In 2008 Sony intr0duced a new platform called TransferJet. The idea is pretty simple; allow devices to communicate wirelessly and move data between them at high speeds. This new standard will transfer data at 560Mbps as compared to BlueTooth at just 3Mbps.

The technology will be used in both computers & devices allowing such things as cameras that automatically transfer photos to you laptop/desktop. They are even embedding it in their proprietary Memory Stick storage solution.

Some devices will hit the shelves before the end of January with more to come over the next 6 months. The drawback? The devices can only be 3cm apart. That's a pretty close distance. It's easier than hooking up a cable, but not by much.
