TransferJet is an intriguing closeproximity wireless technology that’s taken what seems like a lifetime to arrive. It was first announced in 2008, but it wasn’t until October 2014 that we first saw it demonstrated, after which it became available in Japan. Now, following a splashy Berlin launch event in September 2015, Toshiba has finally brought TransferJet to market.
TransferJet is similar to Bluetooth, in that it allows you to transfer files between smartphones, tablets and Windows computers even if you don’t have an internet connection. The £40 price quoted here gets you an adaptor that plugs into the Micro USB port on your Android device, and a full-size USB adaptor that plugs into your Windows PC or laptop. A separate Lightning adaptor for iOS devices is available separately for £35.
