New printer models from Epson are to support Google's forthcoming Cloud Print service, the ink cartridges manufacturer has revealed.

The internet giant is due to roll out the service this autumn and selected Epson devices will be compatible with the service, which will allow users to print wirelessly with their smartphone or tablet computer using Gmail for mobile.

Product management director for Google Mike Jazayeri said the company is "very excited" that Epson is planning to support the "seamless" service.

Ian Cameron, Epson's general manager of global communications, explained the firm "is all about providing customers with the maximum possible value".

Cloud Print will also enable users of Google's Chromebook laptops to wirelessly print without the need to install drivers and Mr Cameron said the service "liberates busy Epson customers".

Owners of Apple devices running on iOS can also make use of cloud printing technology, as Epson recently announced many of its major new models being rolled out this month will be compatible with AirPrint.
