As noticed by The Telegraph, Microsoft is staffing up to finally bring Xbox Live to Windows Mobile.

The company has posted four job listings specifically related to the project, which include a Principal Program Manager, Software Test Engineer, Senior Software Test Engineer and Principal Program Manager, which has since been filled.
