Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_Kindle
https://kindle.amazon.com/
http://www.amazon.com/Kindle-Glare-Free-Touchscreen-Display-Wi-Fi/dp/B00I15SB16
http://www.amazon.in/All-New-ereader-Glare-Free-Touchscreen-Display/dp/B00KDRQ2R

Can we transfer digital electronic media viz eBooks, eMagazines, eNewspapers etc from Laptop, Smartphone and Tablet computers to Kindle E-Reader Device and from Kindle E-Reader Device to
Laptop, Smartphone and Tablet computers using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth Technology ?.

The Smartphone, Tablet or Laptop computer will detect the Kindle device using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technology for Data Transfer viz pdf, html, .chm etc documents to Kindle as well as from Kindle stored digital media to Smartphone, Tablet or Laptop computer.
i.e. Bidirectional Data Transfer.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Kindle uses AZW coding format for the data file.  It is similar and easily converted to and from MOBI formats.

In order to transfer files for use in other devices the file must be converted from the e-format to the format of the new device.  Many apps and online conversion programs are offered for these solutions.
