http://docs.xamarin.com/guides/android/user_interface/creating_a_splash_screen discusses windowBackground. It should also discuss when you would want to use windowContentOverlay instead (when you are trying to emulate the UI of your app before activity can inflate first layout, for example). I put my use of it in SO answer at http://stackoverflow.com/a/17517570/420175.
