Ashton Kutcher, the man who played Steve Jobs himself in the movie “Jobs,” has been hired by Lenovo as a product engineer. He has embraced Android and will now help Lenovo out with their products. However, this is no celebrity endorsement. According to Kutcher, he will do much more than just be the face on advertisements.
Kutcher will be heading to Beijing to meet with the R&D team to learn about Lenovo and how it internally works. Then he starts helping and advising the company on how to build better products. He went to school for engineering and is a techie, so this could be the first relationship between a tech company and a celebrity that will be more than just endorsement.
He says that he has converted to Android and is even testing an unreleased Lenovo smartphone at the moment. We applaud him for choosing the better mobile OS and we can’t wait to see what Lenovo has in store, especially with the help of someone who better knows what regular people want. Would you purchase an Android-powered Lenovo phone?
