Using OnPlatform for color of a TabbedPage in xaml causes an exception only when running on a device.
**Steps to Reproduce:**
1. Create a TabbedPage with Xaml.
2. Add xaml for the background color.
<OnPlatform x:TypeArguments="Color" iOS="#FFFFF6" Android="#FFFFF6" WinPhone="Default"/>

**Build Date & Platform:**
VS 2013 Update 3
It works on a simulator.
I have checked this issue but I am not able to reproduce this issue.
Steps I followed:
1. Create a Mobile App ( Xamarin.Forms Portable)
2. Create a Tapped page.
3. Write the following code
<OnPlatform x:TypeArguments="Color" iOS="#FFFFF6" Android="#FFFFF6"
When I deploy application on device, I am not getting any error/exception. I am able to deploy application successfully on both devices android and iOS.
Could you please provide sample application and build information ? So that we can reproduce this issue at our end

Now that we have a confirmed repro... when can we expect a fix ?
Any news ? it`s been over a month !
The attached sample is no longer available and I am unable to reproduce given the description. Is this still a problem for you?
I can't say, I completely changed architecture to bypass the bugs.
We can no longer repro this. The original issue is almost certainly a case of the linker being unfriendly.
