Is iPad the Kindle alternative?

I was almost convinced but for 3 things:
1. Lack of Flash/Shockwave support - will web sites adapt to iPad or will iPad cave and go with Flash? I'd love to be able to watch Hulu on it.
2. Price: At $499, I think I'd still prefer a laptop with Kindle for PC. The price will have to go down by another $100 or so (with 3-G support) before I'd go for it.
3. ATT for 3-G support. Their coverage isn't great. Can I get decent signal if I happen to go the Appalachians or the Poconos?

It's real close though and I am sorely tempted.
