Sony announces TransferJet launch for use with memory stick19 January 2010 17:30:03
Sony has announced the launch of its highly-anticipated TransferJet technology which allows the wireless transfer of data between devices.
The new technology comes in the form of a memory stick, the Sony-only alternative to MicroSD cards.
The first products being released to use the technology are the Vaio F laptop and TX7 and HX5V digital cameras. However, the cameras will not have TransferJet built-in but it will come attached to the optional 8GB memory stick.
Unfortunately, so far the new memory sticks that incorporate the system are only being released in Japan, but it reveals the likely format Sony will use to deliver TransferJet to the rest of the world.
In a press release from 2008, Sony claimed TransferJet would be capable of effective speeds of 375Mbps and would operate when devices were within 3cm of each other.
Earlier this year, the electronics giant announced it was abandoning its opposition to MicroSD cards and would start to make its products compatible with the format, alongside memory sticks.
