If at first you don't succeed... iterate, iterate, iterate on Android? After signing on Ashton Kutcher as a product engineer -- and then going on to release a pair of poorly received tablets -- Lenovo is dusting itself off. A marketing executive told Recode that the company is once again teaming up with Mr. Kutcher, this time on a line of special edition smartphones. Unfortunately, details about the devices are scarce for now -- all we know is that they're due out later this year, and that contrary to what you might expect, Kutcher will in fact have a say in the product design. "I know on one level, it sounds corny, but it is real," chief marketing officer David Roman told Recode. Because these are limited edition phones, we're going to assume they'll be sold under the Lenovo brand -- not Motorola's. Still, we've asked a Lenovo rep for comment and will let you know if we learn more.
