Kodak unveiled new printers today that offer native Google Cloud Print compatibility, along with a new e-mail print feature.

Not to be outdone by HP's cloud printing announcement today, Kodak also unveiled a slew of new devices today that will support Google Cloud Print and Kodak Email print. You'll need a Google account to access both new features, but eventually you'll be able to e-mail print jobs directly to any Kodak printers past and present, as long the device has built-in wireless access. To kick things off, Kodak unveiled a new portfolio of office-friendly multifunction printers called the Heros.

The Hero 3.1, 5.1, 6.1, 7.1, and 9.1 don't have the catchiest names on the market, but they're certainly not lacking in feautres: they all feature ample displays from 2.4 inches all the way to 4.3 inches on the flagship 9.1 model. Multipage autodocument feeders (ADF) and automatic duplexing (aka double-sided printing) round out the Heros' core functionality.

The Hero printers will eventually replace the current "ESP" moniker attached to all Kodak printers, with future models all carrying native Google Cloud Print compatibility and continued support of Kodak's Pic Flick App for iOS, BlackBerry, and Android devices.

See Kodak's current product lineup page for more details on the entire Hero line.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
