At our Tech Cocktail SXSW event, aside from showcasing 30 startups which were finalist of the SXSW Accelerator program (see the winners) Microsoft’s mobile development team put three mobile developers to the test as part of a Mobile App Smackdown (think Iron Chef for mobile application development). Working in partnership with Cooliris’s LiveShare photo sharing service, developers on three platforms, iPhone, Android and Windows Phone 7 hacked away for the duration of the event. At the conclusion, they previewed what they were able to create on each platform in just a few hours time.

Check out the video below produced by Cynergy Systems which gives you a closer look at the entire development process and the environment at Tech Cocktail SXSW 2011.
