(KSL News) -- Microsoft is adding cell phones to its menu of gadgets. The cell phone giant is teaming up with Motorola and AT&T wireless to market its "smarter" cell phones.

The MPX 200 smartphone will allow users to link to a Windows PC and pull phone numbers, appointments and e-mail from it.

Microsoft says the phone will fill a niche that camera and Internet phones do not. But some industry insiders say there's not much demand to link phones and computers.

The MPX 200 hits store shelves this fall.
