Sony Launches TransferJet Memory Stick In Japan

Sony Launches TransferJet Memory Stick In Japan

You may remember TransferJet technology from Sony's keynote speech at CES 2010. It allows two compatible devices to wirelessly share files over-air when they are held close together. Sony demoed this tech inside two of their cameras, but it has always been planned for a wider spate of uses.

Akihabara News reports that Sony has just introduced a new line of TransferJet memory sticks over in Japan. Currently, an 8 GB model is the only one available. 16 GB and 32 GB versions are coming soon. Sony claims that two TransferJet devices can trade files at speeds of up to 560 Mbps.

I'm not entirely certain what the utility of TransferJet technology is. The idea seems pretty neat, but I can't clearly envision many situations in which I'd need to use it. The actual speed of these things in the real world is going to be a fair bit lower than what is advertised. Why would you spend a minute or two standing awkwardly near your friend's gadgets to transfer files, when you can accomplish the same task with a USB drive or email?

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
