    Toshiba Corporation will showcase a reference display of an SDHC memory card with TransferJet close proximity wireless transfer technology at the 2013 International CES, to be held from January 8 to 11, 2013, in Las Vegas, U.S.A.

    The SDHC memory card on reference display will be a product under development, integrating a TransferJet transceiver IC, a coupler, an RF filter, peripheral passive parts, an SD bridge connection circuit, and Toshiba's NAND flash memory.

    Data transfer by TransferJet communications will be implemented in devices supporting SDHC memory cards, such as digital cameras and PCs, by inserting this card in the card slots.

    Yet another "standard" that no-one wants or needs that just adds cost. Besides, is it even available outside of Japan?
    Oh, and it's barely faster than USB 2.0, so it's hardly a Jet...

    What? It's too hard to take the memory card out and stick in a card reader?

    And Bluetooth, you must be having a laugh, that's way too slow for transferring pictures from a modern camera.

    It´s not really handy to get the memory card out and back in after each photo taken, just to view it on a high res screen...

    This type of product targets studio photography.

    This would be great if the speed and price was right, when I'm taking photo's for football games and NCAA Wrestling this would be very handy to send to the laptop and then upload to the web so people can see it.

    I would rather see this in the SanDisk UHS-1 cards.

    You guys are aware that most, if not all DSLRs have software that allows you do this over USB, in fact, you can even take the pictures with the software and a copy is automagically downloaded to the computer connected to the camera.
    Considering this still requires a special "reader" you still end up with a device connected over USB, as this is like RFID, i.e. near touch.

    Transfer Jet is nothing new. It has been out for years.
    Sony used it quite a bit.

    if you can automate it to do it when its nearby charging (which will be faster than a PC's USB ports) its more convenient. doesnt mean i'll ever use it myself, but i still see uses for it.
