Ashton Kutcher designing line of Lenovo smartphones Actor Ashton Kutcher has designed a line of smartphones for Lenovo that will launch later this year.
The star of 'Two and a Half Men' was hired in October as a product engineer and to promote other devices including the Yoga hybrid tablets. At the time, Kutcher said "This partnership with Lenovo brings together my love of technology and design that makes your life better. I can't wait to dig in and help Lenovo develop future mobile computing products."

Lenovo Chief Marketing Officer David Roman confirmed the new line of phones, and says Kutcher worked extensively on the user experience. "I know on one level, it sounds corny, but it is real," said Roman (via Re/code). "He not only sees himself as an engineer, but he is an engineer. If he sees a problem, he wants to solve it."

Kutcher is not new to the technology world, as a co-founder of venture capital group A-Grade Investments. The group has been an early investor in Foursquare, Airbnb and Uber.

81.3.2014 16:23

He is an investor on Skype, Foursquare, Airbnb, Path&Fab, A-Grade, Ooma & Lenovo as product "Engineer" (Oct. 29, 2013).

On the another hand: As actor, I don't think is that great.

Don't forget he did all of the Nikon camera commercials, so he does have good credentials... naaaa, not really.

He's not funny, can't act, has no idea what he's doing with his life because he blew it with a hot MILF like Demi Moore.
