Lenovo smartphones designed by Ashton Kutcher

That 70’s shows star and Steve Jobs look alike Ashton Kutcher is now designing a special edition line of phones for Lenovo. The Hollywood star was brought on board as a product engineer back in October.  According to Lenovo executive David Roman, Kutcher’s role in shaping the company’s hardware is very real. “I know on one level, it sounds corny,” Roman said in an interview with Recode. But he insisted that Lenovo’s partnership with Kutcher isn’t a publicity stunt of any sort. “He not only sees himself as an engineer, but he is an engineer. If he sees a problem, he wants to solve it.”

As of right now it has been stated by Roman that Kutchers main focus is the user experience on the upcoming phones. It should be very interesting to see what he will bring to the table once the phones are released.
