You certainly can do it in a number of ways, because sockets are sockets, very similar on different platforms, but one approach would be the most straightforward: writing the same code on both platforms using C#. To use C# and other .NET languages on Android, you need an alternative CLR implementation, the one which can work on Android. Such thing does exist:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mono_%28software%29[^].

Unfortunately, Mono for Android (MonoDroid) is commercial. There is the open-source equivalent based on ported Mono build: https://github.com/koush/androidmono[^].

So i have to implement the same code on both devices ?

What would be the problem? One application works as TcpListener, another as the TcpClient, connect to listener, they read/write blocks.
WiFi makes no difference. You need to have a network between devices, say, ad-hoc network. This is unrelated to programming on your side.
It was you idea about socket programming, not mine. I would not do it. I would, say, run some standard FTP server on one side, another acting as a client... It depends on how you want to have it...

Can you show me a example ? with file transfer?

Needs too much time. But it's simple: read from file steam, by some chunks, write to network stream. On another side, do the opposite. Take care about last block with the size possibly less than a full chunk...
