Toshiba releases USB sticks with TransferJet technology

Toshiba has released its TransferJet dongles which make it possible to wirelessly transfer data from mobile devices to a PC.  Toshiba states in its press release the dongles support Android versions of 4.0 and higher and the dongle consists of two parts.  The connection is made by a wireless micro USB connector that can be fitted into an Android tablet or smartphone and a regular USB connector that goes into the PC.


Once connected, the devices are able to achieve up to 375Mbps which equals to about 47 MB per second. However that speed will only be achieved if both devices using the TransferJet technology are close to eachother.

TransferJet supports USB 2.0 and requires a PC running Windows 7 or Windows 8. The device costs about $37.
