Ashton Kutcher is designing a line of Lenovo tablets [UPDATED]
Ashton Kutcher, an active angel investor and star of Two And A Half Men, is going to design a line of special edition tablets. The announcement was made by Lenovo chief marketing officer David Roman. Lenovo hired Kutcher in October as a product engineer to develop and promote the Yoga Tablet line. Kutcher is not actually going to work on the design circuitry, but he will be driving the user experience.
Kutcher’s venture capital company is called A-Grade Investments and it put money into companies like Fab.com, Uber, Airbnb, Foursquare, Tinychat, and Socialcam.
UPDATE: This article has been updated based on a statement from Lenovo’s communications team sent to PULSE 2.0. “The development agreement Lenovo has with Ashton Kutcher is for tablets only, and not for smartphones,” said Lenovo in a statement.
