You Can Now Get An iCloud Email Address

Yep, you can get @iCloud.com email accounts now. If, you know, you're bored (or incredibly and irrevocably spammed) on your Gmail or Hotmail or whatever else. Here's how, straight from the iOS 6 Beta 3 Release Notes.

icloud.com email addresses are now available for iCloud mail users. Users signing up for new Apple IDs, or enabling Mail on their iCloud account for the first time, will automatically receive an @icloud.com email address instead of a me.com email address. iCloud users with @me.com addresses that have been used with iOS 6 beta 3 will receive an @icloud.com email address that matches their @me.com address.

So if you've already enabled Mail on your iCloud account, you'll have to either wait for iOS 6 or install the Beta somehow. All in all, this isn't the biggest deal in the world -- maybe another dummy account to point your spammy services at -- but it cements iCloud as the foundation Apple is building its castle on.
