The same day that Windows 10 Anniversary Update started to roll out to computers around the world, the launch date for the Windows 10 Mobile version has been revealed.

The Lumia India team -- so an official Microsoft source -- said on Twitter that Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update will be available from August 9. This is just one week after the desktop launch, and it will give those with compatible handsets to take advantage of a raft of new features.

Of course, just like on the desktop, Microsoft's Insider program means that many eager users have already been playing with the pre-release version of the operating system, but next Tuesday is the official launch of the completed code.

Responding to queries from Windows 10 Mobile users on Twitter, the Lumia India team said:
