Lenovo to launch special-edition phones with inputs from Ashton Kutcher
According to a report in Re/Code, Lenovo is working with movie star Ashton Kutcher, who is also the company’s so-called “Product Engineer,” to launch a line of special-edition smartphones this year.
According to Lenovo Chief Marketing Officer David Roman, while Kutcher won’t be involved in the actual design of the phone, he will be working on the user-experience of the phone.
“I know on one level, it sounds corny, but it is real. He not only sees himself as an engineer, but he is an engineer. If he sees a problem, he wants to solve it,” Roman told Re/Code.
