On Wednesday, Microsoft rolled out the Windows 10 operating system for desktop and laptop users. Now, Microsoft is expected to roll out the Windows 10 Mobile OS for smartphones and tablets in the near future.

A Microsoft executive in South Africa, Anthony Doherty, has told iAfrica that Windows 10 Mobile will be available around November. He added that the Redmond-based company is making apps for Android and iOS because it wants the tool sets available across different platforms.

Despite Doherty's hint, Microsoft has not published any official information on the mobile rollout on its website. The initial release of the Windows 10 Mobile will not be available to all Lumia devices. The Lumia 430, the Lumia 435 the Lumia 532, the Lumia 535, the Lumia 540, the Lumia 640, the Lumia 640 XL, the Lumia 735, the Lumia 830 and the Lumia 930 will be the first 10 Lumia smartphones to receive Windows 10 Mobile when it is launched,
