I am using the Book Catalog program to scan and enter my collection of books.

This program provides an export/backup and import feature, so I can transfer the entered data onto another device.

But I am wondering now: programs can create databases on one device. Can you transfer these database onto another device ?

More specific, could I buy another Samsung Galaxy (or any other Android powered device) and transfer the database onto it for use with the same program (without the export/import feature ) ?

This only applies if you have root access, as Bryan already pointed out in the comments.

I would suggest using a utility such as TitaniumBackup to completely back-up all your applications and your data. It will be stored on your SD card so that you can transfer its files to another device and restore the backups on there.

Note that TitaniumBackup requires root (to backup application data). –  Bryan Denny Nov 5 '10 at 13:09
    
@Bryan You're right, I tend to forget my phone is rooted. –  Arda Xi Nov 5 '10 at 15:30
    
@Bryan Denny: I don't know what rooted means or how to do it, although I have a very good idea of it and I'm sure this site will have some answers on how to root your phone. I am a developer, but since I'm learning Android (and it's development just now), I'm a little hesitant to give myself to many priviliges just yet. I know what one can do to a device if you do not have the knowledge to do ik correct. –  Edelcom Nov 6 '10 at 5:40
