Sony has created a wireless data transfer technology based on ultra wideband called TransferJet. TransferJet will allow electronic devices to transfer files from one to another at speeds of up to 560 Mbps. The technology, which operates on a 4.48GHz frequency, requires that the two devices be touching or within 30mm (about one inch) of one another, similar to near field communications. Sony said multiple devices in close proximity won't impact performance, security features are built in, and TransferJet won't interfere with other wireless systems. Sony imagines the technology will allow users to transfer video or pictures captured on mobile devices such as cell phones to televisions or other electronics. Right now it has developed chips small enough to fit into dongles, but has yet to convince any other companies to use the technology.

leave it to sony!

I never knew a company that invented so many things that u could only use on a sony device. By the way has anyone picked up that new Sony Mini Disc player? Maybe not, well at least run out then and pick up those hot new Sony Super-cd players. (don't laugh, sony made like 3 of them back in like 2001 or something!) Sadly Sony has good products but they make it a pain to use them or should i say to keep using them. Just for example look at memory cards, everyone uses SD cards now (well almost everyone). Sony still has its memory stick! I am surprised that the Sony-Ericsson Cell phones don't use a memory stick or something... 😈
they do they use the memory stick micro but what do u expect they want to make money and if u make stuff like Sony does u deserve to make them buy there stuff to make their product work
Yeah, I agree, Sony is a very proprietary company!!!

I can't think of the model, I think it's the K850, that supports both microsd, and memory stick micro.
Not to mention betamax, blu ray, UMD.... the list goes on
