Lenovo, Ashton Kutcher to Launch Line of Phones This Year

Posted by at 12:10 pm on March 3, 2014


Lenovo Chief Marketing Officer David Roman recently said in an interview that “Two and a Half Men” star Ashton Kutcher plans to help design a line of special-edition phones for Lenovo that will launch sometime in 2014.

The former “That ’70s Show” star was actually hired by Lenovo back in October 2013 as a “product engineer” to develop and promote the Yoga tablet line. Kutcher, who studied biochemical engineering at the University of Iowa before pursuing a modelling career, will provide input on the design, specs and software of future Lenovo products.

“This partnership with Lenovo brings together my love of technology and design that makes your life better,” said Kutcher. “I can’t wait to dig in and help Lenovo develop future mobile computing products.”

In the interview with Re/code, Roman said that Kutcher will not have any part of the phone’s design circuitry, but he’ll definitely have full input on the user experience. Roman didn’t elaborate on the comment, but instead said that the idea of Kutcher designing a phone may sound corny, but it’s the real deal.

“He not only sees himself as an engineer, but he is an engineer. If he sees a problem, he wants to solve it,” Roman added.
