Toshiba today at CES 2015 announced the launch of the company's first TransferJet file transfer dongle with support for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The new TJM35420LT dongle includes a Lightning adapter for iOS devices and allows for the transfer of files between compatible devices using Sony's TransferJet close proximity wireless transfer technology.
The low-power TransferJet dongle works over very short distances (3 cm or less) and supports data transfer speed of up 375 Mbps, which is fast enough to send a 100 MB file in just three seconds.
Users only need to attach the 24 millimeter-square adapter to their iOS devices and open the TranferJet iOS app in order to initiate file transfers. Files can be transferred via the TransferJet dongle to another iOS device or other TransferJet-compatible devices such as CyberShot digital cameras, VAIO computers, and more.
Toshiba's new TransferJet for iOS with Lightning adapter will be available this spring starting first in Japan and followed by Europe, the Americas, and Asia. A Toshiba spokesman tells Macworld the dongle is planned to retail for the equivalent of $33-$41.
