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 ereaders use a format called azw.  It is a variant of MOBI and are easily converted.

Other ebook readers use mostly EPUB format.  There are online conversion programs easily available.

Some hardware pc based products claim compatibility but they do it by resident conversion of the format.

Smartphones can read using a variety of apps that are available from Google/play or other app stores.
