Toshiba showed off its first SD cards with TransferJet technology at CES in January. The technology allows you to quickly transfer files from the SD card to a PC or other TransferJet-enabled device without wires.
It’s not clear when you’ll actually be able to buy a TransferJet capable SD card, but you might not have to wait too much longer: one just showed up at the FCC website, which suggests that Toshiba is getting ready to bring this product to market.
TransfJet is a proximity-based wireless transfer protocol that can move content between devices at speeds up to 560 Mbps. Real-world speeds are much slower, but Toshiba demonstrated the technology to me by shooting a video on a camera, bringing the camera close to a PC (which had a TransferJet USB dongle), and transferring the video at 189 Mbps, which allowed it to play on the PC almost immediately.
That’s a lot faster than NFC or Bluetooth, and a lot simpler to use than WiFi-enabled SD cards.
