Apple Rolling Out iCloud.com Email Addresses with iOS 6 Beta 3
With today's release of iOS 6 Beta 3 to developers, Apple has revealed in the update's change log that it is beginning the first stages of transitioning users from the me.com email addresses and Apple IDs available under MobileMe to new addresses using icloud.com.
MobileMe and its me.com addresses were themselves transitioned in 2008 from mac.com addresses available under Apple's previous iTools and .Mac services, with MobileMe users able to send and receive email from mac.com and me.com versions of their addresses using either account.

So they've traded the two-character "me" domain for one three times as long?

As long as they allow me to keep my <user>@me.com emails I don't care. I don't think I'd ever use a <user>@icloud.com email address.

kind of agree - i'm still dealing with the consequences of the .mac -> .me transition, and i really kind of like how short @me.com is. Prefer that they just left it alone - mostly for convenience and partially as a homage to mobile me - though I'm sure Apple would rather forget about it - ha

I like the @me address also.
The service is "iCloud", but I'm still "me".
I thought the "@me" address was very Apple. It sent the message that "We know you're not a corporation or a part of us, you're you."
I hope they keep the "@me" around.

I don't know about everyone else, but I want to figure out how to transition my me.com to an icloud.com email address (non-developer).
For me, me.com sounds a bit selfish, but icloud.com sounds like (oh, you like Apple) - at least it is much closer to the old mac.com email which I can't get to anymore.

They both sound dumb to me...
I don't want to say my email is @me.com or even @iCloud.com
I wish they had stuck with @mac.com
Now I have a Signature!

Hmm... I switched to iCloud email from a Google Apps domain because it was shorter and so I could have space to archive my mail without Google serving me ads on it. If they move to @icloud.com addresses, that takes away one of the two big reasons I switched.
I wish Apple had some kind of Domains-like program where I could use iCloud space with my own domain. Oh well, as long as they let my @me.com address stay.
