Whats better/cost efficient nook color, nook tablet, kindle fire..or something else?

The kindles are way better than the nooks both in features and ebook selection (from my own real world tests).
The nook color is basically just a color ebook reader, whereas the kindle fire is a complete tablet.
You can get the fire for a good deal here:

There are lots of different kindle models, so it depends on your needs as to which is best for you.
If ereading is your primary goal only, then I would recommend one of the basic kindles..
Either the wifi only basic model:

Or the 3g keyboard kindle:

BUT, if you primarily want a media tablet (youtube, web browsing, apps etc) and only secondarily an ebook reader then I would totally go for the kindle fire:

The kindle fire is one of the only mobile tablets that supports flash - neither the nook or ipad support flash!
If your choosing between the two basic kindles above, then something to consider is that the 3g keyboard kindle allows free web browsing anywhere over 3g, whereas the basic wifi only kindle only allows web browsing in wifi hotspots like mcdonalds or at the airport. The web browser on the 3g keyboard kindle is much more basic than the browser on the kindle fire, but it's fine for news/blogs & email - and consider it is free anywhere over 3g it's a crazy deal.

Nook color would definitely be the cheapest one. But its backward... technically it only has a 800Mhz single core processor. While the nook tablet and the Kindle fire both have a 1Ghz dual core processor which means faster performance.

And the fact that both are just a little bit ahead in the price but would offer a lot more. So I prefer that you either choose to go for the kindle fire or the nook tablet based on your own preference after reading this informative review:
