I'm not entirely sure what MonoDroid can do about device-dependent behavior. 
DateTime.Now is retrieved from gettimeofday(2), and the timezone is detected
from a bit of logic based on mktime(3), localtime(3), strftime(3), etc. (see
for details).

The fact that it works in some places and fails in others suggests that some
vendors are screwing up libc/bionic with custom changes, and I can't really see
a way to easily work around this.
