- Mono for Android is available only for Windows (and Mac). It is not available for Linux.
- The installation of the application from Visual Studio and application response for the few clicks is pig slow. It is not Visual Studio's fault. It seems Mono takes quite a bit of time for JITting. After each part of the code is JITed, the application response for that part is fairly ok, but not as good as Android's native\custom VM Dalvik.
- The trial version does not allow deploying on the device. You can play around and deploy only on the emulator. If you want to use it on the device, it costs. Yes, it costs somewhere between $400-2500, depending on the licesing and support. Pretty expensive!
