According to a rumor posted over on tech site Win Rumors, Microsoft’s new Xbox Live dashboard update is set to launch next week. The site said it had a look at the update yesterday at the Nokia World event, and has posted a video of its hands-on with the update’s Windows Phone integration and Kinect features. It has been reported previously, that WP7 users can use the phone as a remote control with the dashboard via an app created for the service. A leaked PayPal memo posted back in September, while the dashboard’s beta was ongoing, pegged the new interface for a November 15 release. We’ll send a mail. Thanks, OXM.
