Posted on: October 30th, 2013 by ABC News No Comments

Lenovo(NEW YORK) — Alicia Keys has been the creative director of BlackBerry. Shakira was named T-Mobile collaborator last month. And now the latest celebrity tech hire? Ashton Kutcher is now a product engineer at Lenovo.

Kutcher announced his new role Tuesday evening and also unveiled Lenovo’s latest Android tablet, the Yoga, which has a unique hinge and 18 hours of battery life.

Kutcher, a longtime technology investor and self-professed techie, said this is more than just a celebrity marketing move. Of course, it is partially that — Lenovo would not divulge the financial terms of the partnership — but Kutcher was very clear that he plans to do more at Lenovo than just pose in advertisements. In fact, he’s heading to China to meet with their teams. He said he has become an Android convert and is already testing an unreleased Lenovo phone.

Lenovo has not yet released a smartphone in the U.S. It has been rumored to do so this year.
