DateTime.Now always return the UTC time and Time.CurrentTimeZone.GetUtcOffset() always return 0 on Android 2.1.
This does not seems to be device dependent. I get this result on an Sony Xperia X10, HTC Hero, Samsung Galaxy 550 and the emulator.
How to reproduce:
Set the 2.1 device or emulator timezone (in my case Eastern time).
Run the repro and look at the application output.
DateTime.Now and DateTime.UTCNow should not be the same.
Time.CurrentTimeZone.GetUtcOffset() should not return 0.
// To get the right value for DateTime.Now
DateTime nowutc = DateTime.UtcNow;
DateTime correctedNow = TimeZoneInfo.ConvertTime(nowutc, TimeZoneInfo.Utc, TimeZoneInfo.FindSystemTimeZoneById(TimeZoneInfo.Local.Id));
// To get the right value for the current TimeZone
This looks like the same issue as bug #3520 which I believe is Android 2.1 bionic issue.
