iOS 6 beta 3 kills e-mail addresses in favor of iCloud
Since the launch of iCloud last year, Apple has been slowly phasing out and transitioning old MobileMe users to the new iCloud platform and name, and one more piece of that puzzle seems to be coming into place with iOS 6. The new beta 3 of iOS 6 is showing that new users will be transitioned to new iCloud e-mail accounts. 

According to the iOS 6 beta 3 changelog:

MobileMe was discontinued just last month, and users were given warnings to migrate to iCloud in order to keep a working e-mail address, but it looks like iOS 6 will make that process automatic by moving all users to a new e-mail address. So, if you've been one of the lazy users who never moved your MobileMe account to iCloud, it may be done for you soon enough.
