Toshiba TransferJet chips to go into phones next year, beam 1080p movies in seconds

0. phoneArena posted on 01 Oct 2013, 04:46

Toshiba claims that TransferJet uses less power than Bluetooth and all that is required is for the transmitting and receiving devices to be close enough to each other. A pair of the tiny adapters now come for about $100, but in the future the TransferJet chips will be planted into phones, tablets and other gear, rivaling cable connection speeds...

I wonder why Sony did not use this technology on their phones, even though they are the one who developed the transfer jet technology.

Sony devices are already in a premium range for price and adding something like that would just increase their handset cost. Unless they want to be at a loss in profit and want to sell it to me for less. I'd totally welcome that, but I don't want to pay too much.

I would say its because they really suck at marketing... and including such advance features would mean that they have to increase cost, and very little people would really benefit from it...

How many Sony Xperia users do you know that are aware of their CEC capabilities in their devices... (old sony phones with microHDMI ports)...

I am techie and I didn't know until my wife accidentally found out using her SE Xperia Pro a couple of years ago... She was watching a video on TV with her device and hit the remote control of the TV and voila, the smartphone was being controled...

This is a pretty neat feature that only Sony phones had for microHDMI ports (UNTIL MHL came along), and they do not even advertised it... it also baffles me that most TVs have this function and it never gets mention.

I would definitely agree that they don't advertise...buts that the kind of company they are. They play big on the gaming market with Playstation, but they aren't all about the smartphone biz. Maybe just in America, because in the past year they have closed down their HQ in Manhattan and every Sony Style store around.

They just don't want to get caught up in the all the chez that U.S. carriers demand. I'm glad we even got to see the Xperia Z. I'm not so sure about the future.

Yeah I guess that could be it... I don't live in the U.S., but most of my smartphones purchases are done there, or through internet and sent to U.S., I live in south america and the best selection (nearby) with a reasonable cost is over there... so on one side it sucks that Sony is not that interested in American markets, but on the other hand I am glad they sell their smartphones mostly carrier free and factory Unlocked...

either way, if Sony marketing was on par with Samsung's or Apples they would easily be N°3 worldwide.

I guess no one beats Japan in smartphone magic. Unlike someone here *cough*, they actually innovate. A fingerprint scanner isn't all that impressive, now something like this would definitely make me buy it. Too bad.
