Toshiba TransferJet MicroUSB promises ~375 Mbps wireless data transfer

Toshiba TransferJet technology is all set to become the next big thing in the close proximity wireless data transmission arena. Toshiba's Japanese #-Link-Snipped-# has listed a MicroUSB adapter that allows transferring data at the rate of about 375 Mbps to various devices that are in close proximity (approximately 3 cm max.). The latest iteration of the adapter is smaller in size and while the raw speed the technology offers is about 560 Mbps, the 'effective transfer speed' is about 375 Mbps. Toshiba and a team of about 52 other companies have been working on the TransferJet technology for a few years now.


These wireless speeds make TransferJet about 8x faster (Ref: #-Link-Snipped-#) than Wi-Fi Direct and is capable of sending a 100 MB file from your mobile phone to your TV in < 2 seconds. NFC, one of the most popular short-range data transfer technologies is exceedingly slow in comparison, at about 0.424 Mbps max. The TransferJet devices will consume lesser power than Bluetooth and the data transmission rates are quite faster. The pairing of TransferJet devices will be similar to that of Bluetooth pairing.

The technology looks very promising and will take some time to make it to the smartphones. Toshiba has currently rolled out two TransferJet adapters (Micro-B for smartphones & Type A for personal computers) which you can use with your existing devices. Each of these adapters are likely to cost about $38 - 40. You should be able to use these adapters on your mobiles or tablets with Android 4.0 or higher and Windows 7/8. We have no clue whether OSX devices are supported.
