Samsung to Bring Wireless USB to Phones

Samsung announced a new system that allows wireless USB to be added to devices such as mobile phones. This form of short-distance wireless transfer permits users to place a phone on or near a target device, connect the two and transmit data wirelessly. This wireless USB technology combines an SD card, an MMC, a NAND flash memory and a high-speed USB 2.0 On-The-Go interface. The system can reach up to 480Mbps and 128-bit AES encryption to protect data from being hacked during transfer. Word is the chips are already sampling and will be in full production in the second quarter of 2009.
