Toshiba Launches Industry’s First TransferJetTM Adapter for iPhone, iPad, iPod

TransferJetTM is a close proximity wireless transfer technology standard promoted by the TransferJet Consortium. The technology provides simple connections and ultra-high speed data transfers with low power consumption, and works simply by bringing the two devices in the transfer into close proximity. Maximum data throughput is 375Mbps*3, and 100 MBytes of data can be transmitted in approximately three seconds. 

Users can use TransferJetTM after attaching the adapter to an iPhone, iPad or iPod with a Lightning connector and downloading the iOS app from the App Store. The adapter provides high speed file transfer throughput for large data sources, including movies and pictures. Users simply select the data file to be transferred on the screen of a mobile device and then “touch” the device against the receiving device.

In parallel, Toshiba has also launched a 2nd generation USB adapter “TJM35420AUX” for the Windows® OS, and a MicroUSB adapter module “TJM35420AMU” for the AndroidTM OS, that are compliant with TransferJetTM, with sales scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2015.

The new adapters for the Android and Windows® OS offer a 1.7 times faster transfer rate, 30% lower power consumption and 30% less volume than Toshiba’s previous models*4.

The new TransferJetTM adapters will be exhibited at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), to be held in Las Vegas from January 6.
