So, does iOS 6 finally allow us to transfer files/media to iPhones/Pads without needing a PC/Mac with iTunes installed?

Keep your hopes up for the apps integrating iCloud(that barely qualifies as a cloud).

With AirDroid on Android you don't even need a cable. It runs a small webserver on your phone. Anything with a web browser can view it. In fact, my fiancé wanted a picture from my phone on her iPad. She just fired up Safari connected to my phone and got what she needed.

I guess the point I'm trying to make is that its a real shame that Apple sacrifices all of this potential usability for the sake of "usability"? Its a shame they view iTunes as a feature when nearly anyone that uses it hates it meanwhile any other phone simply mounts as external storage.

Not from the OS itself as it seems.

There are a couple of apps that can help you do so, "Air Sharing" as an example. That gives you a webinterface to transfer files.
