Microsoft has just announced the winners of its Australian "Dev vs. Dev" contest, crowning the champion of its first Australian Windows Phone 7 app challenge.

The winner of the comp and the recipient of a free trip to Microsoft's MIX11 developer event in Las Vegas went to The Toothbrush Island team for their game Nine Lettuce, a charming-looking word game where players are challenged to create as many words as possible from the nine letters presented on-screen. The game also includes a multiplayer mode where two players can play the same game board simultaneously.

Microsoft also named five runners up and six honourable mentions. Check out all of the finalists in the gallery below.
